COLEBROOK, New Hampshire — A woman is accused of ransacking her father’s grave to find his will.

Prominent businessman Edward Nash died in 2004 at the age of 68, according to Daily Mail. He was buried in a cement vault. But last month, it was found vandalized, and his casket was open.

Nash’s daughter, Melanie Lynch, was arrested along with two other suspects.

According to court documents, Lynch and one of the suspects were dropped off at the cemetery by the third suspect. They then dug up the grave and opened the casket.

They didn’t find a will — only a pack of cigarettes in Nash’s hand, according to reports.

Nash has since been reburied.
