In what police say is a twist of 𝙣𝙤𝙩-𝙨𝙤-𝙝𝙪𝙢𝙚𝙧𝙪𝙨 events: Lee County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit detectives were notified of a skull located at a thrift store in North Fort Myers on Saturday, a social media release states.
"The shopper, who happened to be an anthropologist, noticed the skull in the Halloween section and recognized it to be human." the November 4 Facebook post reads, in part. The post is accompanied by a few images of the skull from different angles.
Detectives with the Lee County Sheriff's Office responded to the store on North Cleveland Avenue to recover the skull; based upon on-scene observations, it is believed to be human. The store owner said the skull was located in a storage unit that was purchased in years prior.
Police say that at this time, the case does not appear suspicious in nature. The Lee County Sheriff's Office will work in conjunction with the District 21 Medical Examiner's Office to facilitate further testing of the skull.
