HUMAN HEADS STOLEN – POLICE INVESTIGATING
Denver police haven’t been very forthcoming about the stolen heads, but the broadcaster reports that they had come from Science Care, which is a program for donating bodies to science to help improve scientific research and education in the sector.
“Pretty shocking. I guess I don’t see too many strange things happening around here usually, but you know you never know. Wow! I would have been so terrified,” Isaac Fields, a resident who lives nearby is quoted as having said.
So far, no arrests have been made in the case and neighbours are wondering whether the suspect intended to steal the remains, or something else entirely. If they did in fact mean to steal human heads, the big question is: What do they plan to do with them?
Though slightly more grim, in January, police in Nevada arrested a man after they found severed body inside a car he admitted to stealing.
Police reportedly found several human body parts in the bed of the truck, including a plastic bag with a severed head. According to a criminal complaint, the truck reportedly had coolers that contained two human legs and an apparent human torso. The victim was identified as a man who died from multiple gunshot wounds.
The suspect was subsequently charged with murder.
