Happy to find a beautiful gift wrapped item on the street? Hold it for a moment. It might be a human skull inside, at least if you live in Brazil.
Police in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo are baffled after someone has been leaving gift wrapped human skulls across the city.
Detective Paul Henry Bozon Verduraz described the case to a local newspaper in an article published this week.
The first skull was found in cherry red wrapper late last month in a pot near a residential building in the center of the city. Since then, seven others have been found near Mormon temples or consulates, including Russia, the Czech Republic and South Africa. The skulls are old, with dirt on them.
Verduraz said that security cameras in the areas captured images of a woman in a skirt to the ankles leaving skulls that look old, with dirt. He thinks this may be part of some kind of ritual.
