According to Sun-Sentinel, Jose Diaz-Marrero, 20, and two others, ages 18 and 21, allegedly burglarized a home in Silver Springs Shoresin 2010 and they allegedly took items such as electronics and jewelry. They were also accused of taking urns that had the remains of the homeowner's father and her two beloved Great Danes.
Detectives who invetigated the case said the men said they took the urns because they thought they contained crushed up pills. They then decided to taste and then snort the ashes. The men allegedly told detectives they realized what they had snorted after they saw a story that was published in the Star-Banner, according to Ocala.
Diaz-Marrero said he knows he made a big mistake and that he wished that the victims were at court so he could tell them how sorry he was.
