NORTH AUGUSTA (WRDW) -- Public Safety officers said they know where a skull came from, but not how it ended up at a city recycling center.
Investigators have determined the skull is real and belonged to the Biology Department of North Augusta High School, Lt. Tim Thornton said.
The skull, which is currently being kept at the Aiken County Coroner's Office, was the target of a senior prank, Thornton said. After our story ran last week, a student contacted the Coroner's Office and said they heard the skull disappeared a few years ago, but was never returned.
Thornton said it's unknown how the skull ended up at the recycling center, but says no further investigation is planned.
