DAVIS – A family in Davis is shocked and upset when their son comes home and tells them about a bizarre incident at a Davis High School.
He told them two weeks A year ago, another student from the Da Vinci Charter Academy brought biscuits to the school, which were baked with human ashes, and took them around.
"This girl tells everyone, basically, that she brought these cookies to school with human ashes in them," said the Da Vinci Charter Academy high school student, who spoke with FOX40 on Monday.
The police confirmed that the boy's story was not just a wild rumor, and after investigation, they believe the story is believable. "Based on the general circumstances, we believe it is believable, can we confirm it 1
One student baked the sugar cookies with the ashes while the other one distributed them, Lt. Dorshov.
The Davis police say they know nine students who ate the biscuits, some who knew what was supposed to be in them and others who did not.
The boy's family agreed to speak with FOX40 on the condition that their identity was hidden for fear of setbacks from the Davis Joint Unified School District
"It blew me away I was upset that I was not even notified, "the boy's mother said.
What annoyed the boy's parents most was the way they said the school handled the incident.
The student's mother says that the school administration questioned her son because he feared that he would have eaten one of the biscuits. Her son said that he was asked to make a statement about what happened and sign it.
"After that, he did not tell me to tell anyone," the boy told FOX40.
The mother of this student said she had met with the Director of the Da Vinci Charter Academy, Tyler Millsap, and requested a copy of her son's statement.
"The district seems to be a little more concerned about protecting themselves than protecting their students," his father said.
Both the headmaster Millsap and DJUSD rejected the interview requests from FOX40. DJUSD sent the following statement Monday:
"While we can not comment on a confidential student ma I can tell you that our students' physical and social-emotional safety is our first priority.
We take any allegations of misconduct are serious and will conduct in-depth investigations and, if necessary, involve the police, and if misconduct is detected, disciplinary action will be taken and action taken to remedy the damage within the community.
This Case was particularly challenging and we responded appropriately and correctly in the most respectful and dignified manner possible. "
On Tuesday, Principal Tyler Millsap published a statement on the school's website to address the incident:
" The in the Media circulating history is something I do not say anything about But let me make it clear that there is no health risk on our campus or with one of our students … I can say that those who were involved are remorseful and this is now a personal family affair and we want to respect privacy from the families involved. According to Doroshov, no biscuits or samples were obtained from the police
Davis police said they did not know if the incident could be described as a crime dark crimes in the state code on the elimination of human remains, but the Davis police says this may not fit.
