Okay, Who Donated The Human Skull To Goodwill?

Quick question: Did you donate a human skull to the Goodwill on North Lamar Boulevard in Austin, Texas?  Because if you did, it's no big deal, but the police would like to have a little chat with you.

I hope someone else gets a good deal on these puppies.

KXAN reports that the skull was donated recently, and while police "don't believe it was part of a crime" they "suspect it was part of a private collection."  Was it part of yours?  Why would someone go to the trouble of collecting a real human skull, only to give it away?  Did your skull collection become too much trouble?  There are so many questions.

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?  Now that seems like a person whose skull collection became too large.


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."

Hear that everybody?  Treat your real human skulls with respect, don't give them to a joint where any old high schooler can get ahold of them for $1.
