Missing dead woman's rings were cremated with her

by

MANITOWOC, WI (WTAQ) - Police in Manitowoc now say that six rings missing from a woman who died at a hospital were accidentally cremated along with her remains.

Jean Stradal died on October 11th at the Holy Family Medical Center in Manitowoc. Her daughter Ann thought the rings might have been stolen between the time of her death, and the time a funeral home picked up her mother’s body from the hospital.

Police detective Mike Stone said investigators found a coroner’s photo which showed that the rings were still on Jean Stradal’s fingers when she left the hospital. He said the rings were apparently cremated, and a funeral home employee was very apologetic about that.

Meanwhile, the hospital and its employees are off-the-hook.

Vice president Mary Mauer said Holy Family had quote, “absolute confidence” in their employees’ honesty.
