SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — Police say no charges will be filed against a grieving man who sprinkled some of his dead fiancee's ashes near an eyewear store, causing a Florida mall to be evacuated and shut down for two hours.
Sarasota police Lt. Pat Ledwith says a man on Tuesday sprinkled some of the ashes in places that were special to the couple. Officials say the woman had a connection to LensCrafters in the Westfield Southgate Mall and because of that, the man released some of the ashes there on Tuesday.
To store workers and passersby, it was unclear what the white powdery substance was. Police and hazmat crews responded, and the mall was shut down.
Police say the mall and the Sarasota Fire Department could seek to recover civil costs from the man, who wasn't named.
