Thieves stole a funeral home van . . . with a BODY INSIDE

I would have loved to be a fly on the wall when some thieves realized exactly what they stole . . .

Last week, a man and a woman in St. Louis stole a van that was running outside a gas station while the driver popped inside.

There were two big things the thieves probably didn't realize, though. One: The van belonged to a funeral home. And two: There was a BODY in the back.

The cops tracked down the couple and the van on Friday morning. And fortunately, the body was still inside.

There's no word on what charges the thieves will be facing.
