ROCKFORD, Ill. (AP) — Authorities say a 23-year-old Rockford man has been charged with abuse of a corpse for stealing a funeral home van containing a body that was later dumped in Chicago. The man, who remained at large Wednesday, also faces a charge of unlawful possession of a stolen vehicle. The van belonging to Collins & Stone Funeral Home was stolen from outside the Rockford business Saturday. Chicago police found it Sunday without the body inside. Rockford police say the body of 47-year-old Curtis Brown that had been in the van was recovered Monday evening behind a vacant home on Chicago’s South Side.
