BRIDGEWATER, Mass. (— Bridgewater police are investigating the reported theft of a wedding band and gold chain from the neck of a deceased woman inside a Bridgewater funeral home.

A male relative arrived about an hour early to the woman's wake at the Prophett-Chapman, Cole & Gleason funeral home. He said he could not attend the regular viewing hours and asked if he could go in early.

A short time later, family members noticed the woman's 18-inch gold chain missing from her neck. The chain had her deceased husband's wedding band on it and was reshaped into a heart.

Officers have reportedly identified the suspect and he is facing felony charges.
