Halloween Decorations Bought Turn Out to Be Real

Skeleton

Trick or Treat

Mitchell Fletcher of Hillsborough Florida bought some Halloween decorations at a yard sale – but when he got them home something about the ‘fake’ skeleton he’d purchased for $8 made him take a closer look and ultimately call the police.

Police detectives took the bones to the county medical examiner who confirmed that the couple had in fact purchased a real deceased human being.

Although Florida law prohibits the couple from keeping the bones, which likely came from a medical school, the couple at the very least did get a good deal – an anatomical skeleton typically runs at about $3000.00, which is $2992.00 more than the 8 bucks they paid.
