    Case History
    On May 18, 2006, a homeowner in a residential area of the City of Port Jervis observed from his rear window a human cranium on the roof of an adjacent tire business. The skull, according to the witness, was not there the evening before. The cranium was located on a metal roof of a garage building for a local tire company. The skull appeared to have been set on the sloped roof. It was sitting up right and a single hoop earring was located near the skull on the roof. Broken sea shells were also observed near by but it is unknown if they are related.

    Anthropological studies on the skull indicate it belonged to a white female possible of Hispanic descent aged 25-50 years. There does not appear to be any indications of burial or submersion in water, nor is there any apparent trauma. The teeth appear to have been removed post-mortem and after the skull was skeletonized.

    Port Jervis is located at the intersection of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania and is readily accessed from New York City and other metropolitan areas. Interstate 84, NY 17, US 6, US 209 and the NYS Thruway are all within close proximity or pass thru or by the city.

    it is very strange to me that this young woman's skull was left on top of a building. Even more unsettling is the fact that her teeth were removed from the skull after some time - does this mean they naturally fell out or that someone actually removed the teeth? Did a person place the skull on top of the building or did it seem like a large bird could have dropped it there? This case is very odd and again is very unnerving.

    I mean the report says the head seemed to have been "set" there. :eek:

    2 days later these skeletal remains were found sans head, hands, and limbs near Niagara. It is far from where the head was left, but it makes me wonder...

    we have the dismembering incidents that happened in Niagara Falls, one of which was this past summer and some span back years. Many online have been wondering if those Niagara Falls murders are the work of a serial killer and some wonder if it is the long island serial killer distancing his killing grounds. One must wonder if the killer gift wrapped these skeletal remains found in Niagara Falls like the head that was found. The head has no DNA, but this UID that was dismembered near Niagara does have DNA in the system. The body in Niagara was thought to have belonged to a woman 25-50 just like the estimated age of the cranium found. Something is strange about that body being found 2 days after the head no matter the distance in NY. The postmortem interval of the body near Niagara could not be determined - makes me wonder. always wondering.

    The broken sea shells sound like some kind of ritualistic performance.
    Santeria....Bruhadia? Not sure I spelled the second one correctly.

    Great point! I was wondering if there was a ritualistic element to this. Perhaps so! The seashells yes that's a big clue. Thanks @spike !
