DELANO, Minn. (AP) — Authorities in central Minnesota are looking for whoever burglarized a widow's home while she was attending her husband's funeral.

Anne Crowley of Delano (DEHL'-uh-noh) arrived home with her children from the parish cemetery to find her house had been burglarized.

Crowley's husband of 27 years, 50-year-old Steven Crowley, died in a highway crash. His funeral was held Wednesday in Delano, and he was buried that afternoon.

The Wright County sheriff's office says the crime happened sometime between 10:30 a.m. and 2:25 p.m. Authorities twice checked on the house at the family's request during that time, but didn't see anything suspicious.

Sheriff's Lt. Greg Findley tells the Star Tribune ( the daylight break-in was obviously timed to coincide with the funeral.

Authorities don't know yet what all was taken.
