BOGOTA, May 27 (UPI) -- The hearse driver for a Bogota funeral home stopped for a beer and failed to deliver a body to the cemetery while the family waited, police said.

The Latin American Herald Tribune reported Wednesday that relatives and friends of Tito Vasquez waited for several hours Sunday at the Campos de Cristo cemetery for the hearse to arrive so that they could bury their loved one.

Vasquez's family said they could not understand why his body was not being delivered for the funeral.

Police said Vasquez's body was found in the hearse in the parking lot of a motel in Bogota's San Bernardo neighborhood, the newspaper reported.
