Police are investigating a report that a Davis high school student brought biscuits baked with her grandmother's ashes to school and led her around.
At least nine students were admitted to the sugar biscuits, Davis police told the CBS 13. It's not clear how many ate the supposedly tainted treats – apparently nobody got sick or was physically harmed, Lt. Paul Doroshov said.
A student at the Da Vinci Charter Academy High The school told FOX40 on Monday that a schoolmate baked the biscuits two weeks ago and gave them to other Da Vinci students.
"This girl tells everyone, basically at this time, that she has brought these cookies to school with human ashes in them," he said. The boy and his family spoke with the station on condition of anonymity because they feared retaliation from the Davis Joint Unified School District.

The boy told Fox40 that administrators questioned him about the biscuits, had him signed, and then warned him not to tell anyone.
According to Doroshov, the biscuits were not tested for human remains. If a deliberate contamination is confirmed, the police would have determined what crime might be charged.
The Davis Joint Union School District made a statement that he could not comment on confidential student affairs, but that he himself was investigating. —
