The target.   (?digitpedia)

(Newser) – Now that's low. Indiana cops have busted a 37-year-old man they say swiped a Game Boy from the casket of a teen killed in a car accident. The heist occurred during viewing of the 11th-grader's body at a local funeral home, said investigators. The teen's uncle confronted the robber outside the home and recovered the Game Boy, but returned to find a Game Boy light and 3 games also missing from the casket, reports the Tribune-Democrat. Jody Lynn Bennett faces various theft counts as well as charges for abuse of a corpse and desecration of venerated objects. "He's messed up," said a relative.

Do you really think Funeral Directors leave things of any value in caskets? They are the last one to close it up, that game boy was on e-bay by the end of the day.
