HOUSTON (AP) - Three Kingwood teens have been arrested and
accused of digging up a secluded grave and removing a skull in
Humble.
17-year-olds Kevin Wade Jones and Matthew Richard Gonzalez told
Houston police they and a 16-year old juvenile dug up a grave
around March 15.
According to court documents, they removed the skull from the
coffin and converted it into a "bong," to smoke marijuana.
Jones and Gonzalez were arrested last night and are being held
on misdemeanor abuse of a corpse charges. The juvenile was referred
to Harris County juvenile justice system.
Houston police said they were initially interviewing Jones about
the use of a stolen debit card when he told them about the grave
theft.
Gonzalez confirmed the story to investigators in a follow-up
interview.
A woman who answered the phone at Gonzalez's home, said, "I
have no comment right now."
Attempts to locate a telephone number for Jones were not
immediately successful.
The grave belonged to Willie Simms.
