Sgt Bryce Heinlein said the woman told them she had found the skull and led them to an abandoned homeless camp a couple of blocks away. That’s where officers found the rest of a decomposing body.
Fox news quoted Philip, a neighbour who lives near the homeless camp, as saying: “Twenty cop cars out here. And the cops got her out there. And they’re taking pictures of her holding a head.”
The coroner will determine the identity of the remains and the cause of death.
