    WARREN, Mich. (WXYZ) - “You just see the people going in the dumpsters," said Warren Manor Apartment tenant Lisa Latham, "Getting pop bottles and cans and stuff.”

    Latham will tell you dumpster diving around her Warren apartment complex is pretty common. But one woman picking the garbage Tuesday morning didn’t find trash, but a reason to dial 911.

    “I’m inside the Manor Apartments." said the 911 caller, "And found a human skull in the garbage. In the dumpster!” ...

    They found a doctor's ID with the skull? In Michigan? It didn't say Dr Teleka Patrick did it?
    We 'embraced' the missing Bob Harrod case as requested but 6 years on, are still waiting for further guidance

    “It looks like a human skull." said Warren Police Commissioner Jere Green, "It’s recovered, along with a lab coat, some ID for a doctor. You know there’s probably not prints. We might get DNA, but there are no witnesses.”

    “Somebody either hiding something or hiding for a long time and wanted to get rid of it." said Latham's son Jamie Latham, "And around this season, this is the perfect time because no one’s really outside.”

    So the doctor's ID had no name or he/she wasn't telling it.

    Skull Found In Warren Apartment Complex Dumpster

    March 27, 2014 12:27 PM

    WARREN (WWJ) - Police in Warren are investigating after a human skull was found in a dumpster.

    A female tenant at the Warren Manor Apartment complex on Dequindre near 8 Mile Road was searching for returnable cans when she made the grisly discovery.

    Police Commissioner Jere Green told WWJ Newsradio 950′s Chrystal Knight that, along with the skull, a doctor’s lab coat .and I.D. tag, and some paperwork from a local hospital was found...

    If it was a murder, I could see someone stealing such items and tossing them in the trash with the body. But...if the dumpster is picked up on a regular basis...someone had to keep the remains and toss them recently which is unusual. Most murderers want to distance themselves immediately from the victim.

    Another thought could be it is a cadaver body from a teaching hospital or something and an intern just quit taking the cadaver with him/her.

    Do "training materials" include bringing home a skull? Wouldn't they know if it was fake, or do they always use cadavers for training?

    I wouldn't have known about the skull being found if I hadn't heard about it on the radio (WWJ) while folding laundry. Nothing in The Detroit News or on WDIV that I check daily.

    I was dreading I'd got the wrong end of the stick and it was going to turn out to be a Michigan in Alabama or something. I'm surprised no journalist seems to have asked any questions in regard to Teleka. It's worrying, really.

    the ID must have a name on it and it either is not Teleka...

    Or it is.

    know what I mean?

    I am ssuming the former as we can't be the only ones freaked by this coincidence.

    From the CBS report above: "...Police Commissioner Jere Green told WWJ Newsradio 950′s Chrystal Knight that, along with the skull, a doctor’s lab coat and I.D. tag, and some paperwork from a local hospital was found..."

    The hospital in Kalamazoo where Teleka was a resident wouldn't be "local" to Warren, MI.

    I don't know why they're not releasing the nametag information - maybe investigating the individual. According to reports, DNA tests on the skull will take at least 30 days.

    thanks BDE. Still an odd coincidence. And perhaps very sad for a family somewhere? Thanks for the updates.
