State Police are investigating the discovery of a reported human skull that was found behind a dumpster at a LaFayette apartment complex.

Troopers were called to the Willow Wood Apartments on Route 11 just before 3 p.m. 

An investigation revealed that the skull was thrown in a trash dumpster behind the complex by a neighbor who recently moved out.

A neighbor told investigators that she saw children were playing with items in and near the dumpster. Troopers think the skull may have been removed from the dumpster.

The skull was sent to the Onondaga County Medical Examiner’s Office for further study.
