The AP reports that KCPD spokesman Steve Young said the department is trying to determine if the eyes were human.
The only reported lead in the story is that the gas station's security footage shows two men in a blue Toyota leaving the eyes. Adding to the strangeness of the story is that police say no area hospitals were expecting a delivery of eyes last night.
Young told The Star, "We are not sure whether a crime has been committed. We truly are not sure the eyes are even human."
It's the second time this year that Missouri has made national news with removed body parts. In January, a Kirksville man allegedly killed someone, severed the victim's arms and threw them at neighbors as police arrived on the scene.
