An investigation is underway with police working to confirm if two students were behind the alleged morbid plan.
"Some students knew beforehand and still consumed the cookies", Doroshov said.
He added, "I have not heard of anyone getting sick or anybody being harmed as far as physically, physiologically by this".
He admitted he was unaware as to whether baking human remains into food could be considered an actual crime, noting that it would "probably take some legal debate to figure out".
Police in Davis, Calif., are investigating reports of students who allegedly baked one of their grandparent's ashes into a batch of cookies and then fed the treats to their fellow classmates.
However, according to Doroshov, the allegations are based on multiple student reports.
There have been plenty of cases of students bringing pot-laced cookies to school, but cremated remain cookies is a new one.
Knox said the girl, who was not identified by authorities, previously offered him some ashes if he swapped desks with another student in their class.
"That's just gross", said one Boston-area 19-year-old to LifeZette of the seemingly Halloween-themed cookies.
"We're letting the school handle the matter with the juveniles and the families", Lt. Paul Doroshov of the Davis Police Department told HuffPost.
But, Doroshov cautioned, because of the students' ages, charges weren't likely and the police were instead looking to work with the school district in favor of an equitable solution. "We're gonna let the school lead on the disposition of this case".
"It involves juveniles so there's various options as to what can be done with it", he said.
The principal, Tyler Millsap, told parents in a letter that the students were remorseful and that "this is now a personal family matter". "I was upset that I wasn't even notified", said the boy's mother.
