Police investigating after a ring was stolen from corpse

ODESSA, Texas (KWES) – Police in Odessa, Texas are looking for a woman who walked into a funeral home and stole the wedding ring right off of Lois Hicks’ finger as she lay in her casket.

Hicks’ family members released video of the woman walking into the funeral home and forcing a ring off of Hicks’ finger, leaving cuts and bruises.

“It’s important because it belongs to her for one, it belongs to us, it’s not for someone else to take,” said Hicks’ granddaughter, Brandi Carrasco. “It’s sure not for someone else to take off a deceased person.”

Police say the suspect, described as a heavy set woman wearing a long sleeve brown sweater, black sweatpants and black sandals took off in a red or maroon Saturn.
