Police Officer Finds Message in a Bottle Along With the Ashes of the Sender's Son

By

When a beachgoer handed over to the police a bottle they'd found on the Florida shore, Sergeant Paula Pendleton probably didn't expect such an emotional journey. The bottle contained  couple letters, a bag of human ashes, and four dollars. 

The ashes belonged to Brian Mullins, a tow truck driver from Garland, Texas, who died in early 2019 at the age of 39. The letters were heartfelt and included the phone number of Brian's family, along with four singles to cover the phone call. Brian's mother had hoped that people would find the bottle containing her son's ashes and "update her family on the bottle's journey," according to CBS News.
