Police in California are trying to identify the man they say walked into a police station and left behind human remains.

The San Bernardino Police Department issued an “Attempt to Identify” on Thursday asking the public for help.

“On Thursday, February 2, 2023, an unknown subject entered the San Bernardino Police Department and approached the public counter,” the statement says. “The subject then tried to put what appeared to be deceased animal remains and a lower jaw that resembled a human. It was unclear at the time if the remains were real.”
