Hey—weird question—did you donate a human skull to the Goodwill on North Lamar Boulevard in Austin, Texas? If so, no big deal, but the police would like to "circle up" with you.
KXAN reports that the skull was donated to Goodwill recently, but cops "don't believe the skull was involved in a crime" and "suspect the item may have been part of a private collection." Was it part of yours? Did you decide suddenly last week that you didn't need it anymore and that someone else might like to acquire it for a reasonable cost?
Oddly enough, this isn't the first time someone has donated a skull to Goodwill this summer. The Medical Examiner's Office in Seattle is still looking for the person who donated three (3) human skulls to a local Goodwill in July. Was that you, too? How many skulls do you have lying around?
Here is a helpful reminder from Kathy Taylor, a forensic anthropologist with the Medical Examiner's Office: "A skull, even a medical skull, is still human remains and needs to be treated with respect. So you shouldn't throw them in the trash, you shouldn't take them home and collect them, and you definitely shouldn't give them to Goodwill."
