Woman arrested at Mohegan Sun with son's ashes

Posted: Updated:

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - Police say a Bridgeport woman has been arrested at the Mohegan Sun casino carrying the ashes of her dead son.

The Connecticut Post reports Raisa Gonzalez faces charges including larceny and conspiracy.

Police say she was found inside the casino in Uncasville Sunday with an urn containing the ashes of the 8-year-old boy, who had died in Puerto Rico and been cremated at the Luz De Paz Funeral home in Bridgeport.

Police say a surveillance video at the funeral home shows Gonzalez taking the remains and running from the funeral home.

Gonzalez has no listed phone number and it is unclear if she has hired an attorney.
