DETROIT (WJBK) – Lillie Patton said after her father passed away, he was cremated and his remains were sent to her via the United States Postal Service. However, she said the remains she was supposed to get didn’t arrive.
The heart-shaped box reads ‘Daddy’s Girl’ but it sits empty. It’s supposed to be holding the ashes of Patton’s father, Jimmie Ward, Jr. but she says the cremated remains were lost in the mail.
“They said that they’ll look into it and they couldn’t find him. Couldn’t find him? What do you mean you can’t find him?” Patton said on Monday.
