Woman stole $18K meant for boy's burialSeptember 13, 2019
By The Associated Press
EVANSVILLE — An Indiana woman has been arrested for allegedly stealing money intended for the burial plot and headstone of a 3-year-old boy who died in a hot car.
Thirty-seven-year-old Caroline Rich, of Evansville, was being held Thursday on $5,000 bond on preliminary theft and fraud charges. She has a hearing scheduled for Tuesday.
The Evansville Courier & Press reports that Rich is a family service counselor at Dignity Memorial/SCI Shared Resources, which owns Alexander Memorial Park and Funeral Home.
Investigators allege in court documents that Oliver Dill's family paid Rich more than $19,000 for his burial plot, headstone and services, but that she pocketed all but $1,000 of that money.
Dill died in July after being left in a hot car on the University of Southern Indiana's campus.
Court records don't list an attorney for Rich.
