CBS-TV tells more about Bull Valley skulls

I guess we can rest easily, since "there is no danger to the community at this time." Well, tell that to the people whose skulls were found in Bull Valley.

CBS-TV says the (McHenry County) Sheriff's Department says the skulls are human. Trying to piece this story together from media reports? You might want to give up now.

Were the skulls found alongside the road? Was one found yesterday morning and moved? Who would find a skull and move it, and not call the police immediately?

Not connected with any open missing-person case? How can they say that so quickly?

Now read the Northwest Herald story at http://www.nwherald.com/2012/01/25/bull-valley-boy-found-first-skull-on-way-to-school/a4jg827/

According to the Northwest Herald article, a boy on his way to school found the first skull on Tuesday morning by his family's mailbox. That's m-o-r-n-i-n-g. His mom called the Bull Valley P.D. and left a message. Yet it seems to have been afternoon, say, after 4:00PM, when MCSD responded to Bull Valley PD's call for assistance.

Let's see the timeline on this one. Did hours really pass before police responded? The Daily Herald says that Bull Valley Police showed up about 3:00PM. Where do we live? In the Twilight Zone?

If your kid just found a skull out in front of your house, are you going to take him to school and then go about your day? They live almost within sight of the police station. If you walked it would take less than 5 minutes, why did the response take so long? If the police didn't respond right away why would you not go to the police station, that is right around the corner? If you are going to move the skull, why not put it in the bag and take it around the corner to the police department rather than your garage?

The mom apparently tolerated a 7-hour response time by the Bull Valley P.D. She left a message? Hello!!!

Don't Bull Valley residents know what to do if they get an answering machine at the P.D.?

See where the Deputy Coroner said the skulls were there for "quite a while"? And the kid didn't see them all the other days since September?

The Bull Valley PD has two major functions, Traffic Enforcement, and Home checks for Residents.

Since "BVPD" has no full time Officers or Detectives, And surronding Departments had to be called in, Would the Village of Bull Valley have to reimburse the responding Agencies???? How does that work

It was probably assumed to be a teenage prank or something leftover from Halloween. If it was a body, or a detached head, then an immediate response is appropriate. But finding just a skull, by a mailbox, wouldn't raise a red flag in my book,

Well if my CHILD found a skull in my driveway it would raise more than one red flag!!! Maybe it is just me but HELLO!!!! And I sure would not pick it up, move it to my garage and go about my day! Something does not ring true here. And yes it is Twilight Zone time on this one. Sometime I wonder where all of the sane people went.

I think the last sane person in McHenry County left on the last stagecoach out of town.

Notice how the mother thought the skulls had been thrown there the night before, but the Deputy Coroner said they'd been there quite a while. Good thing the mother got a photo of the snow UNDER the skull.

Rest assured, the skulls found are not of TMB's. Tho many would like to "have my head". DOH!

If you look at the picture of the skull, it looks like a haloween fake. Appears to be a red plastic cap at the base as well. Like I said (although poorly thanks to auto-correct) was if it was fleshy, or bloody, then yes, call 911. But if it looks like someone's haloween decoration, throw it n the trash.

Gus - when they turn out to be resin models, as pointed out on Cal's blog, I want my Sane McHenry County Resident ID Card back!
