A Florida cemetery worker has been arrested and charged with stealing the credit card of a deceased U.S. sailor and World War II veteran and making unauthorized purchases, police say.
Sumter County, Florida, officials arrested Kevin A. Cullen, 33, a grave digger at the Florida National Cemetery after family members of the deceased veteran began to see newly charged items appearing on their relative’s credit information.
When the family of the veteran who passed away at 93 started to wrap up the man’s financial affairs, they noticed items charged in Bushnell, Florida, that were purchased months after the veteran died. Such items as pizza and video game cards were included in the charges. The veteran was a U.S. Navy torpedoman in the Atlantic theater during World War II. – READ MORE
