ROME, Ga. (AP) - A Georgia man and an estate sale manager clearing out his grandfather's house in Rome came upon an unusual discovery - a human skull.
Ashley Norris says his grandfather owned a drug store in the 1950s, and the skull was found in a cabinet with display items such as old clocks with Coca-Cola signs on them.
Norris tells The Rome News-Tribune that police were notified after people who saw the skull said they thought it was real.
One theory: A police officer remembers a report of a crypt at a local cemetery being vandalized several years ago, and a skull went missing.
