Authorities say Kijon Griffin stole a mortuary van from a crematory on Aug 25. The van contained a body on a gurney that rolled out of the vehicle’s open back hatch when Griffin took off. Personnel from the crematory were able to secure the body as Griffin made his way.
The chase culminated with Griffin hitting several cars and blowing out a tire before ditching the vehicle. He reportedly escaped into the woods but turned himself in to the police the following day.
