Young girl finds human head on Australia beach

 
 

SYDNEY (AFP) - Police were carrying out forensic tests on Monday after a young girl found what is believed to be a human head washed up on an Australian beach in a plastic bag.

The gruesome discovery was made at Porpoise Bay on Sunday by the girl, who was holidaying on Rottnest Island off Perth in Western Australia with her family.

"We believe it to be the remains of a human head," Inspector Denise Grant said, the West Australian newspaper reported.

"However, we are yet to confirm this. We can't confirm it until the forensic pathologists have finished their examination."
