A man called police earlier this month after he says someone spread human remains on his front lawn, according to the Murfreesboro Post.
On April 6, a resident on Warrior Drive said he saw a couple spreading ashes on his yard.
The ashes were in a plastic bag and box with the name of Kilgore Funeral Home, which is located in Tullahoma.
The resident said the couple, including a woman in her 20s, were spreading the ashes around 1 a.m.
Police called the operator of the funeral home and transported the remains to Middle Tennessee Medical Center where they were stored.
The motive and how the couple came into possession of the ashes is unclear. Police are still investigating.
