Middle Ga. burglars steal wife's ashes

NEWBORN, Ga. -- James Dailey told Jasper County police he returned to his middle Georgia home to find the back door open, hunting rifles missing and the ashes of his late wife missing along with the small box that held them.

The ashes of Bonnie Jeaniece Dailey – a woman he affectionately referred to as Niecey because she hated her first name – rested in a tiny brown chest with a silver dogwood branch on it. For three-and-a-half years, they remained on the dresser next to the Dailey’s bed, protected by porcelain pink and white seraphim angels.

Dailey told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that whoever took the box – likely thinking there was jewelry inside – pushed the angels aside and just kept on moving.
