Police are looking for the heathen who stole a mother's cremated remains from her daughter's van in the Bronx earlier this month.

Relatives of Eileen Dashiell held a May 9 memorial service for the 59-year-old woman, who died in late April; her body was cremated on the day of the ceremony.

Dashiell's daughter, who hails from out of state, put the remains in her rented minivan and parked the vehicle on Oak Terrace in the Bronx.

When she returned to the car the next day, Dashiell's daughter found the front passenger side window smashed and her mother's remains gone, along with some other personal items, police said.

The remains were inside of a white cardboard box being carried in a green tote bag (see above).

Anyone with information is asked to call the New York City Police Department's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577.
