Urn with ashes found in donation box

A second hand store in Moulton, Alabama has an unusual find on their hands. An sealed urn was found in a donation box.

The ceramic container was found at the Helping Hands Thrift Store. The ashes inside belong to Anita Garrett. Garrett died in 1973. At that time, the only crematorium was in Birmingham, which is over 100 miles from Moulton. Thrift store employees have contacted police, but no one can find the family of Anita Garrett.

Until someone comes to claim her, Ms. Garrett's remains will remain under the register at the Helping Hands Thrift Store.

If you have any information on the urn or the Garrett family, you can call Helpful Hands on Court Street in Moulton at 256-621-2536.{}
