OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) –
What first seemed like a Halloween prank is now a suspected death investigation after someone has delivered a human skull to Oakland’s police department Friday morning.
People living in the West Oakland neighborhood are in shock of the discovery of the skull.
“I’m very sad, it’s very sad about it,” said neighbor neighbor Fentahun Biwota when he told the skull.
Sky 7 showed the backyard in the west and 29th streets where two people visiting the home found it in common sight.
“It was broken and had some meat on it,” said the Oakland Police Department Sgt.
The people who discovered the disintegration head took it to the center of the police station. At first officials thought it might be a prank so close to Halloween, but when they went out and looked in the car, they knew the head was right.
“I can say in my service year that I have never had a human skull delivered to the police station,” said Cardoza.
The Alameda County Coroner Bureau is now working to determine the identity and cause of death.
“I do not say there is any ugly game in this at all except how it came here, that’s something we’re working on,” Cardoza explained.
Mystique is harder because the skull was moved.
“If I found it, I have to call the police before I touch it,” said neighbor Biwota, a feeling like echoed by other neighbors.
The police are looking through missing people’s cases, working to find the rest of the body and asking someone with information to arrive.
The Oakland police said that anyone with information about the matter should call his murder section n at (51
0) 238-3821 or their tip line at (510) 238-7950.
