What a piece of shit crime to commit:

MONTREAL - A heartbreaking crime was committed at Pat Burns' funeral. While the hockey world gathered yesterday to mourn the death of the old coach, someone was smashing into his widow's car. Montreal police say someone broke into the car belonging to his wife, Line, and stole a number of the Burns family's valuable possessions. The stolen items included 30 autographed hockey jerseys, jewelry, and the late coach's wallet. Burns, an award-winning coach of the Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs, Boston Bruins and New Jersey Devils, died after a lengthy battle with cancer. At his funeral yesterday, people remembered the gruff ex-cop as a tough but fair man who cared about his players and knew how to motivate them. Burns' widow discovered the crime this morning. Police say they will launch a public appeal to the thieves, asking them to leave the stolen items in an agreed-upon spot where they could be recovered.

Police said two suitcases were found containing some of the items near the cathedral where Burns's funeral took place on Monday.

Police say the suitcase was given back to police by a citizen, but say 30 autographed jerseys are still missing, as well as a watch.

Aloha,

Brad
