Cremated Remains of Phoenix Woman -- Lost by U.S. Postal Service -- Recovered

Mabel Bink's been found!

United States Postal Service officials confirm to New Times that the cremated remains of the 89-year-old Bink have been recovered and are back with her family in Chicago.

"She's back home," USPS spokesman Mark Reynolds tells New Times.

In short, Bink, a now-former Phoenix resident, died last month, and her cremated remains were lost by the USPS as they were being shipped from Phoenix to Chicago.

Reynolds says the package containing Bink's remains, and a large vault, were found at a USPS processing center in Chicago yesterday -- just a day after news of the snafu broke.

It's unclear what led to the mishap -- Reynolds says USPS officials are in the process of investigating the chain of command for the package.

The USPS got a lot of heat for losing the remains -- losing a cremated body tends to be a bigger deal than losing, say, a birthday card.

The media scrutiny, it seems, lit a fire under the ass of postal employees. Reynolds says those involved in the search went all the way to the top.

"We had everyone looking for her -- this was a joint effort by all departments," he says. "The regional vice-president was even involved."

The family plans to reschedule a funeral service for Bink in the next week or two.
