In a surprising turn of events, charred tree bark from Paul Walker's fatal car crash was allegedly stolen from the scene, and eventually sold on eBay.

According to TMZ, the thief, who may have also been posed as an anonymous seller, posted six pieces of burned bark from the site of Walker’s death last weekend, asking for up to $100 for each piece.

However, the seller took down the auction. He apparently had a change-of-heart, after reportedly receiving hate messages for trying to profit from the tragedy.

He released a statement saying, “I would like to apologize to the family, friends, and fans of Paul Walker. At the time I listed the bark for sale, I did not realize the emotional impact it would have.”
