Police are investigating the possibility that a high-school student made cookies mixed with human remains and gave them to unknowing classmates to eat, CBS Sacramento reports. Several students ate the cookies at DaVinci High School that police suspect may have included the ashes of one of the student’s grandparents.
There have been plenty of cases of students bringing pot-laced cookies to school, but cremated remain cookies is a new one.
Police say the cookies in question were sugar cookies that the student brought to campus and handed out to at least nine students.
Davis Police Lt. Paul Doroshov says he’s never come across a case like this.
“No, this is a weird one,” he said. “I have not heard of anyone getting sick or anybody being harmed as far as physically, physiologically by this,” he said.
