OK, we ran a story about this the other day...

"Human skull found in the woods...etc..."

Question is: If you were out on a hike by yourself and found a skull that had obviously
been there a while, would you be tempted to keep it?


and before you freak - I am NOT psycho!! we were just discussing what you would do...

although i did say it would make a good addition to the "collection"...

No. I'd turn it over to the Police/Medical coroner.

My old girlfriend's dad found a skull while falconing, and kept it.
Link Posted: 5/21/2005 7:50:33 PM EST
nope. I'd note the location the best I could (or more likely use my GPS), leave the skull be and get ahold of the Sheriff's department. Just because it looks like it has been there a while doesn't necessarily mean it has been. It could also be a body to an old unsolved murder, such evidence may finish up the cold case.

I would remember the spot exactly and lead authorities to it.

Don't want to fuck up a potential crime sceen.

The skull was attached to someone once, someones family. I'd want that mystery solved for the benefit of those who knew that person and never knew what happened to them....and if a crime had been commited, to help get the person responsible.

I think I'd contact the police. The last thing I need is a real human skull to go along with my guns and military equipment. I'd never get laid again.

When I was in Israel touring the Garden of Gethsemane, a guy found what looked like a bowl at first, then we realized it was not a bowl and that it was "possibly" part of a human skull.

Whatever it was, he got it through El Al security in Israel and customs at JFK.

j/k I'd make a cereal bowl out of it instead.

No "Buy it Now" option?!?

Nope, turn it in. First off, its a crime to possess a human skull without licensing and second, its not a fucking novelty, it could be the body to an unsolved crime and could place a: rapist/murderer, murderer/cannibal, pedophile/murderer, sick mother fucking POS behind bars for life.

My final answer is HELLS NO.

No. What purpose would that serve? Rather macabre, to even consider it.
Link Posted: 5/22/2005 4:44:03 AM EST
I would keep it, and make a nice staff.

Link Posted: 5/22/2005 4:48:20 AM EST
I'd call the police on my cell phone and wait for someone to get there, because I'd assume it's a missing person/murder victim. The thought of keeping it would be there, but I'd never do it.
I have skulls from a cow, a goat, and a few deer, and almost had a horse skull. I started to pick it up and found that the brain cavity had a wasp nest in it. It was three hours from home so I never made it back to get it.

Then you'd better not go to med school. I pulled the short straw (literally) along with 3 other students and we had to remove the brains from 22 bodies. The brains were for dissection in our Neuro-anatomy class the next semester. I've had my fill of skulls. I'd definitely report it to the police but anonymously. I wouldn't want to be labelled a 'person of interest'.

Already done that

I'm a student in 2nd year of archeology and finding human remains during digs is rather common.
Mine was a gallo-roman skull from the Ist BC and instead of poor yorrick is was rather "To be or not to be that is the question"

have played baseball with an human kneecap and a tibia too but i'm not very proud of that

+1 Yup...and you'd get your name in the papers!

I have enough useless crap laying around the house. Adding a human skull to it would not help.
Link Posted: 5/22/2005 5:54:23 AM EST
I would never keep a skull I found. I only keep the ones I dig up in cemetaries...
Link Posted: 5/22/2005 5:58:22 AM EST
I agree with the crime part of your post, but I dont think its illegal to have a human skull/bones/skeleton, as long as its a medical item, and not american indian remains or unearthed from a grave. At least thats the concensus among people who deal in such items.

A very good friend of mine has several degrees in archaeology, and he got pretty used to finding human remains as well.

But, I think recent high-profile cases of child molesters have highlighted that fact that not ALL bodies dumped in the woods are transients and dead prostitutes that nobody cares about.

I cant believe Ebay will let you sell parts of humans that used to have skin and be alive, but not a gun, because it might make you become the part of a human that had skin and be alive.

WTF?

I agree, but when you 1) spend an untold amount of taxpayer money to send an old-ass skull from OR to FL to have it "forensically reconstructed", 2) spend more taxpayer money to have a clay model made of what the vic supposedly looked like, then 3) bring it back to OR and pay some officers to show it around town, just to have some people say "Oh, we recognize him. He was a transient that was here for a week or so in the early 90's" I'd sign off on death by misadventure and leave it to the cold case volunteer unit.

Uses for skulls I find:

Salad bowl
Chip Dip bowl
Soup Bowl
Chili bowl
Hood Ornament
Door knocker
Battle Helmet for my pet Bulldog-Lulabelle
Mint dish on the entry way table
Halloween decoration
Coin tray for my dresser
potpouri dish for wife
Scotch goblet
Bowl- for all the pieces of bullet and shells I find working in the city.

Same here. I'd also step back out of the area in the same prints as I came in, if possible, in order to preserve the crime scene...if that is what it was.
