Two California high school girls have just been accused of serving cookies containing one of their grandfather's ashes. As RadarOnline.com has learned, one of the teens was bragging about the alleged prank to her classmates, until one person alerted authorities.
"This girl is going around telling everyone, basically at this point, that she had brought in these cookies to school with human ashes in them," a student at Da Vinci Charter Academy told KTXL. The student's mother also spoke to the TV station, saying: "It blew my mind. I was really repulsed and I was upset that I wasn't even notified."
Police told PEOPLE that while the story seems true, it is still being investigated and the girls' names have not yet been released. The cookies have not yet been lab tested, as cops are not sure there are even any left.
"We're conducting an investigation into it to try to find out more facts. But really the school is taking the lead on the disposition of the case," Lt. Paul Doroshov, told the outlet. "We've taken a report that we've classified under California penal code as a public nuisance."
Police reportedly found out about the incident on October 4, days after the girls took the batch of allegedly ash-filled cookies to their high school.
"Based on the interviews that were conducted through our investigation, they seemed credible," Doroshov, who is a spokesman for David police, explained. "Am I 100 percent sure? I really don't know of a way to tell at this point."
While at least nine kids ate the cookies, none have complained about any sort of sickness or strong reaction to the allegedly contaminates sweets.
"We're getting conflicting reports," Doroshov added. "I'm trying to keep a straight face while talking to you. This incident is just out there. It's a really weird story."
After news broke of the bizarre prank, the academy's principal sent out a letter to parents, which he posted on the school's website.
"I can say that those who were involved are remorseful and this is now a personal family matter and we want to respect the privacy of the families involved," wrote Principal Tyler Millsap, adding that the issue was "particularly challenging."
As of now, it is uncertain if the girls could face criminal charges for their sick pre-Halloween hoax.
