Of all the bizarre stories that pop up from time to time, this was not a subject I ever really expected to write about. TMZ is reporting that the late Charles "Mask" Lewis' ashes have been stolen and possibly resold by his fellow TapouT founders.

The story is that Mask's sister Carla, allowed Tim "SkySkrape" Katz and Dan "Punkass" Caldwell to take Lewis' ashes and urn for a memorial service. Upon arriving at the service, she found that they were either giving away or selling small vials containing portions of Lewis' ashes to a small group of people whose names were on "a list." From the TMZ report:

Carla believes somewhere between 50 to 100 vials were either "sold, given away, donated or otherwise distributed to several unknown persons."

Not only is Carla PISSED about the vials ... she claims TapouT still has possession of the urn and the remainder of Mask's ashes ... and the company refuses to return them.

Carla is suing for unspecified damages -- citing "overwhelming and severe emotional distress."LINK

Its really to bad this story made it to the media at all. This sounds like a personal/family issue and its no body's business.

This is why you must have a will people! If Charles Lewis has/had a will, then there shouldn't be much of an issue. You just carry out his final wishes as directed. But if there is no will, it becomes a he said, she said issue. His sister will claim that his remains were supposed to stay in the family, and his business partners will claim that Mask wanted his ashes given away in vials..... lol

Again, hope there's a will!

I sincerely doubt that these guys were selling vials. Who the hell of Masks' associates and friends would buy his ashes? That sounds a bit ridiculous to me, and a bit bitter on behalf of his sister. The urn on the other hand...

The comments on that article are some of the funniest I've read in a while.

This whole thing sounds bogus to me. I don't know what Mask's wishes were so I can't take a side here. Maybe Mask wanted that, maybe he didn't. Ridiculous story. Either way I am not going to judge the Tapout dudes (who were close friends with Mask) based on the word of this woman or the article. To me it is just more of the same BS MMA News folly. I feel half the MMA articles out there are foolish and not really news at all.

Oh yeah, bro, it's okay. You can sell my ashes to people if i die. Just make sure you get a good price.

Very odd situation.
