Update as of 5:04 p.m. Monday, February 11
The Glenn County Sheriff's Office has confirmed the bag of cremated remains was placed in the canal as the last wishes of the deceased person.
GCSO would like to remind the public that cremated remains cannot be spread in a prohibited area, cannot be distinguishable to the public or placed in a container.
Update as of 6:22 p.m. Sunday, February 10
The Glenn County Sheriff's Office (GCSO) says that the bag of cremated remains had a tag on it that indicated it came from the La Paloma crematorium in Las Vegas.
La Paloma offers both animal and human cremations so it is still unclear if the cremains are human.
The bag with the cremains was undamaged for the most part, according to GCSO, and was found at the bottom of the Glenn-Colusa Canal on the south side of County Road 33 near the intersection with County Road X. The canal was dry at the time so the cremains were not washed away.
According to GCSO, no one from La Paloma was available to take their call Sunday night.
The Glenn County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that a bag of cremains was located on the side of the road Sunday.
The bag of cremains was reported to them at 2:04 p.m. Sunday in the area of County Road 33 and County Road X.
It is unknown at this time if the cremains are human.
