A skull appearing to be that of a human being was spotted yesterday by the Branch Manager at Courts, in a black plastic bag, on one of Orange Walk’s most trafficked streets.

The infrequent and disturbing discovery was made sometime before 5:00 p.m., on Queen Victoria Avenue in front of Courts (Belize).Ltd and opposite the immigration building.

The Manager said that as he entered the building at around 4:00 p.m. he had seen the plastic bag lying on the businesses’ verandah almost to the end corner.

An hour later, the Manager exited and noted that the bag was still there. He became concerned, thinking that probably a customer had left his purchased merchandise;  he walked to the bag and opened it slightly and quickly recognized the content to be a humanskull. The skull was not complete as the jaw was already detached. A slight odor was also released from within the bag after it was opened.

The authorities,who happened to be not far, responded immediately and about a half an hour later they took the bag and its contents away.

Work today was as usual at Courts and in spite of the finding none of the employees including the Manager seemed to be affected.

We understand that the skull will not be buried and will undergo several forensic analyses.

The investigation might also be lengthy, as police are considering missing persons and also persons from our neighboring countries.
