Police in the US confirmed that they are investigating a report that a student in California decided to mix the ashes of her cremated grandfather into a recipe for homemade cookies before sharing them with her unwitting classmates.
City of Davis Police Department lieutenant Paul Doroshov said on Wednesday that two students decided to bake the cookies before sharing them with ten of their classmates at their high school near Sacramento on 4th October.
Lt Doroshov said that the students’ motive for using the ashes of her grandfather were unknown but that they were unlikely to be charged with any criminal behaviour, not least because there appears not to be a crime that would actually cover the unfortunate incident.
He said instead that he would let the school handle the situation and that it had become a ‘private family matter’.
