Jose David Diaz-Marrero Steals, Snorts Dog And Human Ashes In Florida

One of three Florida men who stole and snorted human and dog ashes was sentenced Friday to more than eight years in prison.

Jose David Diaz-Marrero, 20, committed a series of burglaries between December 2010 and January 2011, authorities told the Ocala Star-Banner.

In his most heinous crime, Diaz-Marrero, with his accomplices Waldo Soroa and Matrix Andaluz, discovered several urns filled with ashes in a Silver Spring Shore he burglarized on Dec. 15, 2010. The group reportedly thought that the urns contained crushed-up pills, so they tasted and snorted the contents. The men also reportedly stole $1,500 worth of jewelry, a laptop and a 42-inch television.

The homeowner returned that night to find that the urns -- which contained the ashes of her father and two Great Danes -- were gone.

Diaz-Marrero pleaded guilty in June to four burglaries, including the ash theft, according to WPBF. He reportedly apologized in court on Friday.
