The staff at Gene Messer Volkswagen in Lubbock, Texas, got a terrible shock when they saw a dead body wrapped in a sheet in the back of a vehicle that had come in for an oil change.

The technicians immediately called police, but the owner of the vehicle said he was transporting his mother's remains from Utah to Aspermont, Texas, and had all the appropriate documentation.
