Human ashes dropped off at a Lynchburg Goodwill store

Loved ones will soon be reunited with human remains that were accidentally dropped off at a Goodwill in Lynchburg.

The store on Timberlake Road gets nearly 100 donations every single day, but in the six years since Denise Keen has been working, she said this is the wildest drop off she's ever seen.

"Just disbelief it was shocking, and kind of sad at the same time," she said.

A customer came up to Keen and told her she found a temporary urn in a drawer of a dresser that she bought at Goodwill.

"At first I didn't really believe her," Keen said. "We always go through pants, pockets, purses, everything."

But, ashes in an urn seemed to be overlooked and Keen said that didn't sit well with her.
