Police have launched an appeal after a bin bag stuffed with thousands of pounds was left on the doorstep of a house.
North Yorkshire Police said they will not reveal the exact amount of cash in the bag, which was handed in to officers in York by the householder on Tuesday.
A spokesman said Tuesday was bin collection day in that part of the city.
Detective Inspector Andrea Kell of York CID, said it was "a very unusual find which remains unexplained", adding, "We would like to find out where the money came from and rule out any criminal connection."
Police are treating the death of a 21-year-old man who fell from a stand at York racecourse as a tragic accident.
The incident happened at around 5.30pm when the Bradford man fell from the Knavesmire Stand.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Although we do not believe there are any suspicious circumstances and are treating the death as a tragic accident, I am appealing to anyone who was in the Knavesmire Stand at the time to contact the police.
– Inspector Charlotte Bloxham, of York Safer Neighbourhood Team
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact York police on 101.
Today is the 39th birthday of York chef Claudia Lawrence who has been missing since March 2009.
“I cannot believe that we are yet again at another birthday for Claudia and there is still no news as to what has happened to her," said Martin Dales, who is Claudia’s father Peter Lawrence's spokesman.
"All anniversaries are hard for the family and friends to cope with and it is unacceptable that there is still no closure – good or bad.
“So I make a further appeal to those who know these answers.
"How can you sleep at night knowing you know the answer?
“ How can you live the lie with yourselves?
“ Have you no feelings for those who are suffering because of your misguided silence?
“Do what you know in your heart of hearts what is right and end the misery of all those who love and care for Claudia even if you don’t.”
