DIKE, Iowa (WOI-TV) — Iowa authorities say a wooden box containing the cremated remains of a Dike man that was stolen in a home burglary has been recovered.
Grundy County sheriff’s deputies had reported that the cremains of 65-year-old Daniel Evanson were stolen during a break-in at his rural home sometime late Feb. 14 or early Feb. 15.
Evanson died Feb. 6. Evanson's family members had taken to social media to plead for the public’s help in finding the remains and the ornate wooden box holding them.
Grundy County Sheriff's Department told WOI that a jogger Friday morning found the box of cremains on a trail in Cedar Falls, which is about 12 miles northeast of Dike.
