THE SEASIDE RESORT of Castro Urdiales in northern Spain, has been the location of macabre discovery this past weekend.
There a woman has been arrested after allegedly giving her friend a box with a rotting human head inside.
The 61-year old woman reportedly handed over the box to her friend right before a police search was to take place in her home in Castro Urdiales, northern Spain following the ‘voluntary’ disappearance of her partner.
The women claimed the box contained sex toys and didn’t want the police to find it, as it would cause her ’embarrassment’
The friend took the box as requested. It is believed that the friend kept the box since April but recently opened it alerted by a bad smell that came from the interior. The shock was immense on finding a rotten head inside.
The police were alerted immediately and the woman who made the gruesome discovery had to be treated for a panic attack, according to local press.
The woman who had handed the box to her friend is being held by officers and has been identified as a 61-year-old, named only by her first name and the initial of her surname as Carmen M.
Police are still trying to identify who the head belongs to but it seems it may belong to Carmen’s 67-year-old partner who vanished in February.
A court in the town is investigating the macabre discovery.
