(Newser) – State police in Michigan are trying to find who left what appear to be a grandmother's cremated remains in an urn at a Goodwill near Flint, Michigan. "It's got to be the No. 1 or No. 2 weirdest item" the store has ever received, says the store manager. He says it appears to have come from a house that was cleaned out; Goodwill workers found the box just before Easter. Other than the "grandma's urn" label, it doesn't have any identifying marks. The cream-colored urn is about 10 inches tall and weighs about 10 pounds. (Read more cremation stories.)
