WAUKESHA, Wis. — A Wisconsin couple’s drug bust took a strange turn when one of the suspects told police he cut his product with an unusual substance: his mother’s cremated remains.
Austin Schroeder, 26, and his girlfriend, 21-year-old Kaitlin Geiger, 21, each face felony drug charges after a tip led authorities to their apartment, WITI reported.
According to a criminal complaint, however, Schroeder told authorities his mother died a little more than one year ago and he mixed some of her ashes with a variety of substances, some of which he ultimately ingested,” WISN reported.
The complaint does not specify if Schroeder mixed his mother’s remains with any of the drugs he is accused of selling, the station reported.
Geiger told authorities “Schroeder creates drugs with chemicals using a pot on a stove,” WITI reported.
