Cremated remains left at Wichita liquor store

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

Charlie Nguyen , the owner of Charlies Liquor and Smoke Shop on East Central, found the ashes.

Just like that, people leave phone, keys, stuff like that all the time, but Ive never seen anything like this.

Nguyen reviewed security tapes but couldnt identify the customer.

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.

I tried to post it on the door, tried to return it to someone, but nobody came forward to claim this bag.

When that did not bring up any leads, Nguyen took to Craigslist posting about the find.

My main thing is I need to return it to somebody. This is very important to someone. This is someones grandma.

Nguyen says he is committed to doing everything in his power to find the owner.

I feel this is very important to me. If it was my relative, I would do whatever it takes to get it back, because this is priceless.

Fox Kansas has been trying to help Nguyen with his search for the ashes owners and theres only one record of a Helen K. Dapron in the US that matches up.

She lived in a suburb of Phoenix, Arizona until her passing in 2010.

If you are or know the owner, call Nguyen at 616-5071.
