Davis police disclosed Monday they are investigating an alleged incident in which two students at Da Vinci Charter Academy served fellow students cookies that had a relative's cremated remains baked into them.

Parents are perturbed and a school is investigating after allegations students at a Northern California high school distributed cookies that may have contained the ash remains of one of their grandfathers.

None of the cookies were available for authorities to test, police said.

"As far as we know, no one's suffered any ill effects physically", Doroshov said.

Authorities are working with the school to determine how best to proceed, he said.

The student's mother says school administrators questioned her son, fearing he may have eaten one of the cookies.

Many have heard of brownies, cookies, and other sweet treats laced with marijuana making their way to school - baking with pot has been around for decades - but desserts made with human remains is a new and unsettling development. Shockingly, however, some students "knew beforehand and still consumed the cookies". "I was upset that I wasn't even notified", said the boy's mother.

Merkel's Bavaria ally CSU suffer 'massive losses'
Bavaria has become more secular, weakening the CSU, while workers no longer automatically choose the Social Democrats, he said. The far right, which is to enter the Bavarian parliament for the first time, said the result meant Merkel ought to resign.

The student's family also talked to Fox 40 anonymously for fear of repercussion from the Davis Joint Unified School District.

On Tuesday, DaVinci Principal Tyler Millsap sent a letter to parents of Da Vinci students regarding the situation.

The boy, who ate the biscuits two weeks ago, was asked to make a statement but says he was told to keep quiet about the incident.

A Davis Joint Unified School District spokesperson issued a statement saying the district can not comment on confidential student matters.

"The story circulating in the media is something on which I can not comment, but let me be clear that there is no health risk ... to our campus or to any one of our students".

'Because of the fact this is so unconventional, it would take more research, ' he added. When we find wrongdoing has occurred, we apply disciplinary measures as well as restorative measures to fix the harm within our school community.

"I can say that those who were involved are remorseful and is this now a personal family matter and we are want to respect the privacy of the families involved".
