SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS — The body of Julie Mott, a 25-year-old Texas woman who passed away August 8, was stolen from a private viewing room at a San Antonio funeral home sometime on the afternoon of August 15. Police are searching for the person or persons involved in this bizarre and disturbing crime. Robert Tips, the owner of the Mission Parks Funeral Chapel North on Cherry Ridge and a family friend of the Mott's, has offered a $20,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest. Tips also speculated that someone objecting to Julie's scheduled cremation, rather than a traditional burial, may have abducted her corpse. For her family, the incident is a horrifically heartbreaking ending to a funeral service that should have been a joyous celebration of Julie Mott's extraordinary life. Julie was born with cystic fibrosis, a genetic condition that can impede lung function. Patients often develop frequent and persistent lung infections and limited air intake makes breathing difficult. Julie's parents were told to expect a lifespan of just three years for their daughter, but with encouragement she fought through childhood and her teen years; graduating from San Antonio University before passing away just a week before her 26th birthday. The funeral home says some security changes will be made but the corpse theft occurred in broad daylight and no locks were broken or off-limits areas entered. It appears a person or persons simply walked out of the funeral home with Julie's remains. The funeral home director says he is doing everything in his power to cooperate with authorities as they investigate this "unprecedented" and "unthinkable" event. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.
