Meet The Degenerate Who Stole Those Game Boys From A Dead Teen's Casket

What kind of a person goes to a wake for a teenager killed in a car accident and steals two Game Boys from inside the dead boy’s casket?

Meet Jody Lynn Bennett, the 37-year-old Pennsylvania skell accused of desecrating the casket of Bradley McCombs. The 17-year-old died on Christmas after crashing his car into a utility pole while driving on a snowy road.

According to police, Bennett (whose family is close friends with McCombs’s parents) attended a wake Monday evening for the teenager. While at the funeral home, Bennett allegedly reached into the boy’s casket and removed two Game Boy consoles and several game cartridges--items that were intended to be buried with the teenager.

Bennett, pictured above, was arrested yesterday and booked into the Indiana County jail on a variety of charges, including theft, abuse of a corpse, and disorderly conduct. He is being held in lieu of $15,000 bond.

A relative of Bennett’s told the Associated Press that the suspect “has been into drugs, he’s into alcohol.” Still, even for a dope fiend, robbing a casket holding the corpse of a teenager is beyond reprehensible.
