Being young is a double-edged sword. On one hand, you get to enjoy that youthful health and apparent invulnerability. On the other, well, most of the time you are not taken seriously because you are still young. However, most young people often shift that to their advantage as well. One high school student in California has caused widespread chaos after giving out cookies then allegedly claiming that they were made from her grandparents’ ashes afterward.
Such as scandal has been brewing in the Da Vinci Charter Academy High School in Davis, California. Families of the affected students are enraged after their children told them quite a story: another student has been passing around cookies made out of dead people’s ashes. According to one of their students, “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.”
One would think that it was just kids being kids, however, the police conducted an investigation and now believe that the story was actually credible. At least, according to Davis Police Lt. Paul Doroshov, “Based on the overall circumstances we think it’s credible. Can we confirm it 100 percent? I don’t think we can say that. We feel it is a credible statement that that happened.”
So far, the ash cookie was only eaten by nine victims, some knew what the cookies were made of while others didn’t. Lt. Doroshov, however, is quite torn whether what the alleged girl suspect was a crime or not. Regardless, the parents of the school were more enraged at how the district officials handled the incident more than the incident itself.
