Students in Davis bake, share cookies made with cremated remains, police say


Police in Northern California are investigating reports that two students brought cookies they baked containing one of their grandfather’s cremated remains to school and gave them to other students.

Davis police say two girls brought cookies to Da Vinci High School on Oct. 4.

The sugar cookies, police say, were baked with the ashes of a dead grandfather.

Davis Police Department Lt. Paul Doroshov said nine people ate the cookies, but there were no reports of any illness. 

Davis police said the school is handling the incident. The school later issued a statement that said “those involved are remorseful” and that it’s now “personal family matter.”

Doroshov added it’s unclear if the students who baked the cookies will be charged with a crime.
