"A Phoenix couple has claimed responsibility for putting two fake skeletons sitting in lawn chairs in the Colorado River in far west Arizona.

The husband and wife approached the La Paz County Sheriff's Office earlier this week and revealed how the skeletons in their closet ended up at the bottom of the river in Parker.

'They were nervous at first,' Lt. Curt Bagby said. 'They thought they might be in trouble. But when they finally came in, they brought a photo as proof that they were the ones who put them there.'

The pair, who may identify themselves publicly next week, came forward after seeing all the media attention surrounding the skeletons.

The Sheriff's Office has no plans to file any charges since the skeletons weren't endangering anyone, Bagby said."
