PITTSBURGH — State police are trying to find a man who they say stole a hand-held video game system and accessories from the casket of a teen who had been killed in a traffic accident on Christmas Day.

State police are not willing to comment beyond a brief news release issued today.

In the release, police say 38-year-old Jody Lynn Bennett grabbed the items from the casket of 17-year-old Bradley McCombs during a viewing Monday night at a Montgomery Township funeral home, about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

The funeral home director and McCombs' mother aren't commenting. The suspect's aunt, Dianna Bennett, says her family is friends with the McCombs and are mortified by the theft. She tells The Associated Press she hopes the police catch Bennett soon.
