A BURGLAR who admitted breaking into the home of an elderly woman while grieving relatives gathered at her wake has gone on the run.
Mark Linnemoller, of Kingsland, Shotley, near Ipswich, was due to be sentenced after being caught red-handed in the bungalow of Phylis Glover by her daughter and son-in-law.
The 21-year-old was discovered by Sheila and Harry Knowles, who had returned to her home after attending after the pensioner's funeral service, held on September 22.
They found Linnemoller inside the address, also in Kingsland, Shotley, wearing gloves and in possession of some of Mrs Glover's jewellery. It is believed he had entered via an insecure window.

Linnemoller pleaded guilty to burglary at Ipswich Crown Court on December 7 and was due to be sentenced on Tuesday.
But he failed to turn up for the hearing and it later emerged he had fled from a bail hostel in Cambridge on January 10.
Judge Peter Thompson issued a warrant for his arrest and police are now making efforts to trace him.
Anna Woolnough, spokeswoman for Suffolk police, appealed for anyone with information about the whereabouts of Linnemoller to contact them on 01473 613500.
