Cedar Box With Pet's Cremated Remains Found, Haltom City Police Searching For 'Sinjin's' Family 

HALTOM CITY, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) - Police in Haltom City made a plea on their Facebook page after someone turned in a cedar box containing a pet's cremated remains.

It was found in the new High Point area by a water tower.

Police said the concerned citizen noticed the box had a bag inside with a powdery substance so they thought it might be contraband.

A card inside said "Turner Family" and the nameplate reads "Sinjin."

The department said there isn't a Turner family in the area and Animal Services doesn't have a record of a Sinjin anywhere. Police also checked with the local pet cemetery, Faithful Friends, but they couldn't help since the pet was cremated in 2011.

The Facebook post said "Sinjin" is a Hebrew name meaning 'God is Gracious.' It is also the name of a character, Sinjin Van Cleef on the cancelled show, Victorious. Or it could have been inspired by the monster guy from FallOut 4."
