Suspect Wanted for Stealing Urn with Human Remains (Photo) - 01/24/22

On Wednesday, January 19, 2022, at approximately 6:40 p.m., Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a burglary in progress on SW 199th Court in Aloha. This is near the intersection of SW 198th Avenue and SW Farmington Road in the Enhanced Sheriff’s Patrol District (ESPD).

A woman called 9-1-1 to report her home had been entered and she wasn’t sure if they were still inside. Deputies arrived very quickly to search the area, including a member of the K-9 team. Unfortunately, no suspect was located.

After searching the home, the homeowner discovered that some jewelry had been stolen, including an urn that contained the remains of her late husband.

The stolen urn (similar in size and shape to the ones pictured) is described as heart-shaped, brush-painted blue, but still metallic looking, and engraved with “James Arthur Bishop, My Love.”

If anyone has any information about this burglary or the location of the stolen urn, please contact the Washington County Sheriff’s Office at 503-629-0111. Case No. 50-22-951.
