CAUGHT GUY ABUSING HIS DOG!! (GETS ARRESTED)
Real human head taken to Oakland police, cops think Halloween prank
- Unsuspecting officers thought a real severed human head was a Halloween prank when two people brought it to a police station in Oakland on Friday.
- Police were shocked when they found the skull to be a covered in decomposing human flesh.
- Officers are now trying to match Friday's head with a body. Police have found multiple decapitated bodies around the Bay Area recently.
Two people brought a decaying human head they found in an apartment complex yard to an Oakland police station last Friday, and police officers initially thought it was a hyper-realistic Halloween decoration.
Officers thought it might have been a Halloween prank — but when upon taking a closer look at the severed head, they realized it was no joke, the ABC7 news channel reported.
"It was decomposed and had a little bit of flesh on it," Oakland Police Department Detective Michael Cardoza told ABC7 on Friday.
The force made further inquiries, then "gathered up some troops and went out to the location where they found this thing," he told local news station KTVU.
Police went to a compound in north Oakland, broke through its iron gates, and questioned some of its residents, KTVU reported. Officers also detained some residents before releasing them shortly after.
Officers are now trying to match the head with a body.
Police told residents in the north Oakland complex earlier this month that they had found a headless body on a nearby street, Pamela Deering, an employee at the complex, told KTVU.
"Evidently since there's a headless body, and now a head, they figure someone must have decapitated the body," she told the network.
