While conducting a paranormal investigation, a married couple discovered something truly terrifying hidden beneath the fallen leaves of a small woodland.
Danny and Felicity Duffy, went out to explore an area of woodland which is situated next to abandoned hotel near Egerton Park, England.
The human skull appeared to have been sat there for quite some time and there was also some decomposed clothing nearby. The couple decided to phone the police as they had no idea if the skull was real or not.
It was later confirmed by authorities that the skull was real.
"This was a very surprising discovery made in the early hours of Monday morning and we have been working ever since to establish the circumstances here," said Detective Inspector Debbie Hurst.
"What we do know is that the item found has been confirmed to be a human skull, but it is still unknown how old the skull is and how long it has been at the location for."
"By the very nature of this discovery, we do understand some concern in the community and of course the sheer intrigue that this investigation brings with it, however we are confident that there is no threat to the public and that this isn't currently linked to any other ongoing investigations."
One of the investigators mentioned that they had not slept and that they were truly upset at their discovery.
