    Police aren’t sure why?
    Umm…because it was stolen and this does happen.
    Are cops this dim witted to utter such a statement?

    could be a couple reasons why. Owner ditched it, collected insurance. Kids playing a prank, Someone stole it and took parts off it, ditched the rest. Disgruntled ex husband/wife/boyfriend getting revenge. etc
