An anonymous Paul Walker fan said he was walking around the actor's Nov. 30 crash site when he spotted a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses. They're now up for auction at BidAMI.com.

The auction site claims that the sunglasses are an "exact match" to the pair Walker was wearing in photos immediately before his death. They're part of a collection of debris salvaged from the crash site, along with a fire extinguisher.

An acquisitions specialist at BidAMI.com said the site had no intention of profiting from Walker's death and insisted that a portion of the proceeds would go to charity.

"He wanted to do this for good, not anything disrespectful," she told the New York Daily News.

A spokesperson for the Santa Clarita sheriff's department told LA Weekly that they weren't confident the sunglasses belonged to Walker.

"As a department we doubt that they are actually Paul Walker's sunglasses. But who knows, maybe they are. Right now we doubt it," the rep said in a statement.
