Alas, poor unidentified person. We never knew you well.

Local Florida news station WPBF reported on a homeless man who had a very unconventional way to uncover a dead body.

Nick Pecoraro works at a strip mall in Sebastian, Florida. One day he saw a homeless man walking around the parking lot, using a skull like a "puppet". The man was talking to it and talking to people with it. Pecoraro said he thought it was fake until he got up close.

Nope. Real.

He immediately call the police.

According to WPBF:

Indian River County Sheriff's Office spokesman Thomas Raulen said the skull was part human remains discovered in a wooded area near U.S. 1 and Roseland Road.

Raulen said the unidentified homeless man had been living in the wooded area when he stumbled upon the skeletal remains near a path. "He had put the skull on top of a trash can over there because he wanted to tell somebody to call the Sheriff's Office," insisted Raulen Tuesday.

Raulen said the man willingly led investigators to scene.

...Investigators said its too early to tell the cause of death or the gender of the victim.

Good job on continuing to give us things to write about, Florida!
