Investigators Now Saying Skull, Jawbone Found In Oxnard Dumpster

Posted on Friday, November 16, 2012 1:05am


Ventura County authorities are investigating the discovery of some human body parts in an Oxnard trash bin, including a skull and jawbone.

Someone looking for recyclables noticed what appeared to be parts in a dumpster near the intersection of 4th, and D Streets just after 9:30 yesterday morning.

Oxnard Police say they don’t know how the parts go there, or who they belonged to, but are investigating. The dumpster was in an alley just a short distance from a school, and the main Oxnard Police station.

Investigators say the remains were weathered, and could have been part of a religious shrine.
