Details

The victims were visiting a family gravesite, and had left their car unlocked. After paying respects at the Forest Hill Cemetery, 3601 Speedway Rd., the two women returned to the car, only to find someone had stolen both of their wallets. They told police they had walked over a hill to get to the gravesite and could not see who might have entered the car. One of their credit cards was later used to purchase gas at a University Ave. location.
