    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- From a repeatedly disappearing mile marker to a woman placed in the wrong coffin, 'THV 11 This Morning' catches you up on some Weird But True headlines.

    Colorado officials think a difference of one-hundredth of a mile will be enough to stop thieves from stealing the mile marker 420 sign along Interstate 70.

    Amy Ford of the Colorado Department of Transportation says the "MILE 420" sign near Stratton was stolen for the last time sometime in the last year, and officials replaced it with a sign that says "MILE 419.99."

    Ford says it's the only "420" sign to be replaced in the state that recently legalized recreational marijuana. Most highways aren't long enough to need one.

    The number "420" has long been associated with marijuana, though its origins as a shorthand for pot are murky.

    A Rhode Island woman wants answers after discovering the wrong body in a casket that should have contained her mother, who died unexpectedly in St. Maarten.

    The Providence Journal reports Lisa Kondvar, of Warwick, discovered another woman's body in the casket last month. Her mother's body had been prepared at a St. Maarten funeral home.

    The family believes Margaret Porkka's body was confused with that of a Canadian woman who died on the island around the same time. They think Porkka's body was cremated in Ottawa. Kondvar says the family wants to know for sure.

    U.S. Sen. Jack Reed's spokesman says his office is working with State Department officials to help the family get answers.

    An Ohio woman made fliers offering a case of beer and a pack of cigarettes as a reward for finding her lost dog - and it worked.

    Twenty-three-year-old Abigail Miller of Dayton offered the unusual reward after her two dogs escaped through an open gate on Jan. 2.

    She found one of them at a local animal shelter a few days later, but the other, a Husky named Zoro, remained missing.

    The Dayton Daily News reports that Miller came up the reward because she could afford it and figured it would attract attention.

    She was right. The man who called and told Miller where to find her dog turned down the reward, but she says she's going to offer him some food from the sandwich shop where she works.
