A woman who's husband died 10 years ago is now reunited with his ashes that were found in a storage room.
Brownsville police tracked the wife of the ashes in the Urn, Joann Nelson, and handed her the ashes. The Urn was found in a storage room when the new owner found it and handed it over to police. The wife says that in 1999 her husband was cremated and she was not able to pay the funeral home to pick up the ashes.
Police say this is the first time they have seen anything like this and it is a mystery how the ashes ended up in the storage room.
