US students given cookies baked with grandfather's ashes: media

A teenage girl in California allegedly baked her grandfather’s ashes into cookies and handed them out to her school friends, local media reported on Wednesday.

The student is said to have given her baked goods to at least nine students, the Los Angeles Times said, citing police in Davis, near the state capital Sacramento.

Some ate the cookies without knowing about the macabre extra ingredient and were horrified, Lieutenant Paul Doroshov said, according to the Times.
