A box of human heads has been stolen from a truck in Denver, Colorado.
The box of heads was being transported for medical research.
The Denver Police Department announced on Saturday that they were looking for the box and information on the person who had stolen it from the parked freight vehicle.
The thief stole the box, which was labeled “Exempt Human Specimen” and a dolly — in broad daylight.
Local station KDVR reports that it was a blue and white cardboard box about 20 x 15 x18 inches with “Science Care” written on the sides.
“After learning of the grim discovery, he had just about as many questions as one might expect. Where was the truck going? Why was it parked on 23rd Avenue? Who was driving? And who would do something like this? Police said what they can release is limited because the case is still active. Neighbors are wondering whether the suspect intended to steal the remains or something else,” the report added.
A man named Isaac Fields, who lives in the Central Park neighborhood where the heads were stolen, told the station that he was shocked by the incident.
“I guess I don’t see too many strange things happening around here usually, but you know you never know,” said Fields, who was walking his dog. “Wow! I would have been so terrified.”
Nobody had been arrested as of Sunday afternoon. It remains unclear how many heads were inside of the box.
Anyone who may have information about the theft is being asked to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers (720) 913-STOP (7867).
