Authorities seized a human skull thought to be from a child of 12 to 14 -years-old from an owner who was trying to sell it on Craigslist back in September of 2011. Children are not usually expected to die from natural causes, so the state wants to be certain the skull is not evidence in a homicide of which they were unaware (or one that has not been closed).
The owner claims to have purchased the skull from a garage sale for $1.00 and was asking $300 for it on the popular trading site. Placing a skull for sale on Craigslist is likely to attract some weird potential buyers. As well as police.
