Grave robber arrested after trying to make SOUP from 100-year-old skeleton

From Newfoundland-

Archdeacon Sam Rose, executive officer of the Anglican Diocese of Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador, said that he had been advised that the remains had been taken from a mausoleum-style tomb, with a heavy concrete slab on top of the grave that would need to have been have been removed during the theft.

He says the parish has been shocked by the violation of a sacred resting place.

"Certainly it was something that you could not dream of or imagine," Archdeacon Rose said in an interview.

"When someone buries their loved one in a graveyard, there's the assumption this will be their final resting place as we say in the liturgy, so when this happens in such a shocking violation of that sacred act, it was (shocking) for me, personally."
