Police have recovered some of the cremated remains of a man that had been stolen from an Alameda church over the weekend, police said.
A widow arranging a memorial service for her deceased husband is without his ashes after a thief entered an East Bay church and stole a backpack containing the remains.
The removal of a man’s body from beneath a brick patio in the backyard at 4 Rebecca Way in Novato was completed around 11:20 a.m. Friday, Novato police Capt. Jim Berg said.
A buried body discovered at the home of a missing Novato man was found under a newly-constructed brick patio that seemed to have been built to cover the gravesite, according to a Novato Police sergeant.
