OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - A human head has been found in a load of recycling debris at a facility in Oakland.
The Contra Costa Times says workers at California Waste Solutions discovered the heavily decomposed skull Wednesday in a load dropped off for recycling.
Authorities did not immediately determine if the head came from a man or woman, how or how long ago the person had died.
Investigators are looking for any other human remains in the area.
California Waste Solutions processes recycling material from across the San Francisco Bay Area.
