The discovery of jewelry missing from the body of a woman who was transported to the coroner’s office in Columbus, Ohio, added to the grief of her family.
The unidentified family of the unidentified woman called police when they noticed that $1,000 worth of jewelry was missing after she was transported to the Franklin County Coroner’s Office, police said.
Derek Lydelle, who allegedly transported the body to the coroner’s office, was charged with one count of receiving stolen property, Franklin County Sherriff’s officers said.
Lydelle worked for J.W. Forney Ground Transportation and allegedly sold the jewelry at a pawn shop in late December, said Sgt. B. G. Duffer.
The contract with J.W. Forney Ground Transportation, which expires in February, will not be renewed, a coroner’s office spokesman said.
