Kentucky police are hunting a man who buglarized a funeral home and took off with a dead man's clothes. 

Leitchfield Police released video showing the theft happening around 8.30pm on Wednesday at the Watson and Hunt Funeral Home. 

'He did a pretty morbid thing as far as I'm concerned and doesn't show much respect,' said Detective Kevin Smith with the Leitchfield Police Department to WDRB.

'This is disturbing. I think that's the best why I can describe it.' 

According to officials, the man was inside the funeral home for several hours.

He was said to have stolen a suit that was going to be used for a dead man's memorial service. The suspect even went as far as to wear the clothes inside the building.
