Deer carcass in trash bin mistaken for human heads

Nov. 1, 2011

In what sounds like the opening scene of a horror movie, city of Brookfield police received a report that four human heads had been found in a garbage bin on the city's west side Oct. 25.

However, responding officers quickly discovered that the report - albeit well-intentioned - was a work of fiction.

According to police reports:

A startled resident reported that a garbage bag containing four human heads had been found in a garbage receptacle behind some businesses in the 12000 bock of Burleigh Road just after 9 a.m. Oct. 25.

After checking a number of garbage bins in the area, an officer was directed to the one in question.

Inside, the officer found a garbage bag containing a deer carcass and hide that had likely been mistaken for human heads.
