When the attending frontline officer opened the urn, she found what appeared to be cremated remains inside.

At this time, it’s not clear how the urn ended up there. Corporal Ian Henderson says Because it was wrapped in plastic and partially buried in the soil, it appears to have been placed there intentionally. But it seems like an odd place to leave the urn.

Police are hoping the urn’s rightful owner will come forward to have it returned for proper interment.

I know, if the urn contained my loved one – pet or otherwise – I wouldn’t want it moved about. I’d want it back, says Henderson.

Anyone who may have information on this matter is asked to call Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212. Should you wish to remain anonymous, please call Crimestoppers by phone at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
