A Lafayette, Indiana Goodwill was surprised when they opened two donated items, and found out they were human remains!

I'm sure many a Goodwill gets some pretty whacky donations when people are clearing out loved ones homes after they die. This has to rank up there with the strangest though.

Goodwill employees sorting through donations found two small white boxes. One of them found the boxes inside a velvet bag inside of a larger box, said store manager Paula Strong.

"When she pulled them out of the red velvet bags, that is when she realized that they were from a crematory and what they were," Strong said.

The remains were returned to next of kin, as the boxes were marked with dates and names.
