Human Skull Determined Halloween Prank from 1940s
CHENEY, Kan. — It’s a Halloween prank that came back to haunt a woman 62 years later. A skull recently discovered near Cheney, Kan., was reportedly just the devilish act of someone six decades ago.
The former “owner” of the skull told investigators someone left it on her family’s front doorstep in Circleville, Kan., in 1949, the Associated Press reports. She buried it before moving in 2010, however it was partially unearthed in 2012. When potential buyers of the property noticed it, they kicked it and realized what it was.
After the discovery made the news, the woman came forward and told police about the shenanigans six decades ago.
