Given the head was found wrapped in plastic, a shark attack has been ruled out.
I’d really like to think that a journalist was dumb enough to ask the question. If the police included it as part of their press release…
Maybe it’s holiday brain; no news syndrome. Whatever: this story was grotesque to begin with, but the reporting is just piling it on. A radio report on Friday said that ‘police had ruled out suicide. ‘
What, not possible for a man to lop off his own noggin, wrap it up neatly, and then dispose of his remaining parts by taking a swim in the general direction of Capetown?
I’ve been exhibiting some holiday brain myself. I’m sympathetic to the young girl who made the discovery, but I can’t help thinking that if a boy had found the head he would have tried to smuggle it home to show around.
