Customer at Kansas liquor store leaves behind bag of ashes labeled 'Grandma'

A Wichita businessman is trying to find the owner of a small bag of cremated remains labeled "Grandma."

KAKE-TV reports a customer left the bag about two weeks ago at Charlie's Liquor and Smoke Shop near downtown Wichita.

Owner Charlie Nguyen reviewed security tapes but couldn't identify the customer. This week, he placed an ad on Craigslist hoping to connect with the bag's owner.

The plastic bag holds a small amount of ashes and a piece of paper that reads "Remains of Helen K. Dapron," with "Grandma" in parentheses. It also gives apparent dates of birth and death, in October 1930 and June 2010.
