Woonsocket Police: Mystery Urn Could Be Filled With Pet Remains
Woonsocket police said no one has stepped forward to claim an elaborate urn which was found in a storage locker earlier this month. But they have learned something about its contents.
Last week Woonsocket police put out an advisory urging the owner of a small urn to come forward to claim it. The urn is about four inches tall, silver in color, with a bright flower pattern. It contained a pile of ashes.
The ashes, as it turns out, were not human. Woonsocket police Lt. Christopher Brooks said two cadaver-sniffing dogs failed to alert to the remains. Police now believe they are the ashes of pets.
The urn remains at the Woonsocket Police Department waiting to be re-claimed.
