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

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.”
