Urn containing remains found at Hillsborough solid waste center, owner sought

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – An urn with remains was found at a solid waste center in Seffner.

Hillsborough County Solid Waste staffers notified the sheriff’s office that they had located the urn earlier last week.

HCSO detectives couldn’t find the family of the individual whose name is etched on the urn. Before the urn is permanently disposed of, detectives want to make sure that it wasn’t accidentally thrown out.

HCSO released the photo of the urn with some details blacked out hoping to find the family members of the deceased.

Detectives are asking anyone who may have any knowledge of the urn and can verify additional concealed details etched on the urn to call HCSO Corporal Shawn Helmer at (813)247-0455.
