    A Pennsylvania man is facing criminal charges after flushing his grandparents' ashes down the toilet.

    Thomas Porter Wells, 33, allegedly did the deed after his mother kicked him out of her house because of his drinking habit and marijuana use.

    Wells texted his mother later, saying "and soon as you die you'll be going in the same spot where you belong down the (expletive) you (expletive)."

    Denise Porter, Well’s mother, reported the crime to police in February, stating that her son had flushed the remains of her dead mother and father down the toilet before leaving her home.

    Porter had kept the ashes in a box alongside a memorial in her bedroom. She said she thinks the ashes were disposed of in September but did not learn about the incident until later from another relative.

    The court complaint alleges Wells denied the charge when confronted by Porter but later sent her the threatening text.

    Wells faces two counts of abuse of a corpse and criminal mischief.

    Don’t see how abuse of a corpse would stick. Hell you’ve already set the body on fire and reduced it to ashes. Can’t abuse it much more than that. Criminal Mischief maybe. Even that would be a stretch.

    I would be surprised if he really flushed the ashes, prolly just told her he did more then likely just threw them away.

    BTW it doesn't sound like something a stoner would do , takes to much effort.

    That's a pretty crappy thing to do if he did.

    I think they are going to have a hard time proving a crime was committed.

    I did a little internet search and think that episode is called Hot off the Grill from 89. I remember Steve eats the burger cooked with the ashes with a big grin on his face.

    If he did that to me, he'd be going in after them head first.
