Remains dug up, stolen from Connecticut cemetery

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut police are investigating a grave that was dug up and remains 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.
