    Remains dug up, stolen from Connecticut cemetery

    HARTFORD (AP) — Connecticut police are investigating a grave that was dug up and remains that were taken from a Jewish cemetery in Hartford.

    Authorities say a 70-year-old grave was dug up at Agudas Achim Cemetery.

    Officers say the incident possibly occurred on Halloween and the person or persons dug the grave with a shovel and their hands.

    Authorities say they are at the beginning of their investigation and plan to view surveillance footage to see if a vehicle left the area.

    WTNH-TV reports that since the family has not yet been notified, the identity of the remains in the grave will not be released.
