FENTON (AP) – State police are trying to find who left what appear to be a grandmother’s cremated remains in an urn at a Goodwill store near Flint.

Fenton Goodwill store manager Allen Ryckman says “it’s got to be the No. 1 or No. 2 weirdest item” the store has ever received. He says it appears to have come from a house that was cleaned out.

The Flint Journal says store workers found the box just before Easter.

The box has the label “grandma’s urn.” The cream-colored urn is about 10 inches tall and weighs about 10 pounds. It doesn’t have any identifying marks or label.

The Michigan State Police Flint post asks anyone with information to contact them at 810-732-1111.
