Two visitors to an Oakland apartment complex had discovered the decaying head in the backyard earlier Friday morning, The San Francisco Chronicle reported. They decided to take it to police.
“They thought it was real enough that it had to be brought to our attention immediately,” Cardoza told KGO.
Investigators searched the apartment complex and interviewed residents, who said they had no idea how the head got there, KTVU reported.
“They come into my house while I’m eating dinner, they come in and tell me something about a head,” said tenant Manul Adrow, according to the station. “I don’t know nothing about no head.”
Others said they were stunned by the discovery, reported KNTV.
