POLK COUNTY (CBSMiami) — Two Florida men are now in jail for allegedly desecrating graves and stealing human remains, three of which belong to military veterans.

According to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, a positive DNA hit from a smoked cigar left behind during the crimes, positively identified the first suspect as Brian Montalvo Tolentino, 43 of Davenport, Florida.

When Polk County detectives served a search warrant at Burgos-Lopez’s home, they found a shed with a religious shrine, and seven skulls, four of which both suspects admitted to taking from graves in Mount Dora.

Police County Sheriff Grady Judd says Burgos-Lopez and Tolentino, were using the body parts to create religious shrines, adding, “This is a black magic art that needs body parts in order to worship. ”

Sheriff Judd says the two men admitted to targeting graves of military veterans, and then used those human remains for religious practice.

Sheriff Judd says Polk County is assisting Lake County Sheriff’s Office in the ongoing investigation to identify the last human remains, adding that the remains which have been identified will be placed back in the graves.
