Georgia man steals mortuary van, dead body rolls out

He’ll steal this van over their dead body!

A Georgia man allegedly swiped a mortuary van while fleeing cops and a corpse rolled out of the back — prompting a police hunt to find him, authorities said Thursday.

A cadaver strapped to a gurney went sailing out of the unhatched back of the vehicle — and into a crematory parking lot in Conyers on Wednesday night when Kijon Griffin, 23, allegedly hit the gas, according to police.

“It’s ridiculous that the dead can’t even rest,” Stan Henderson, who owns the van and Stan Henderson & Sons Mortuary, told FOX5 Atlanta.

Griffin, who was wanted for multiple car break-ins, allegedly struck several vehicles in the death mobile as police sped after him down Interstate 20,  the Conyers Police Department said on Facebook.

But the “Six Feet Under”-meets-“Fast and Furious” chase ended when Griffin blew a tire on the van and took off on foot, cops said.

He allegedly ran into a wooded area and escaped police, including officers using dogs to track him.

Griffin was still at large Thursday, according to cops, who are offering a cash reward for information leading to his arrest.

He faces charges including entering automobile, motor vehicle theft and attempting to elude police.
