Jim Berry, Assistant Chief of the Abilene Police Department, thought the urn was suspicious all along, but APD handled the situation just like any other turned in item by a citizen.
"We, first of all, wanted to keep it a few days to see if anyone would come forward, and let us know whether it was real or a prank," Berry said. "A few days went on and we didn't recieve any phone calls. We felt obligated to determine if this at one time was a real person, and we found out it was not"
Terry Diamond, a local disc jockey and victim, felt responsible for "Jack" while she had him. "I took him to pilates," Diamond said. "When we brought him in, we put him in the garage cause this was freaking us out."
But Diamond is done with "Jack" for good, "I'm dont with Uncle Jack," Diamond laughed. "He can bite me!"
