Debbie Plunkett says someone stole her husband and she wants him back. The Spokane Washington woman told television station KXLY that someone broke into her home and took a customized Harley-Davidson gas tank and matching fenders that belonged to her late husband, Carl Jackson. Inside the gas tank were her husband’s ashes. Plunkett told the reporter that using the gas tank as a funeral urn made sense to her and her family because Jackson loved his motorcycle. “He won tons of trophies with it. That was his pride and joy. Every Sunday he was washing it, washing and polishing it,” she said.
Plunkett believes the thief, or thieves knew the ashes were in the tank but didn’t care. Anyone with information on the theft is asked to call the Pend Oreille County Sheriff’s Department.
