Horror movie fishing: Instead of the fish, Ivica has caught a HUMAN HEAD out of Drava river!
- My hook caught something. I thought it was a log, but I easily managed to take it out. I reached with my hand and I took out a human head out of the water - said Ivica K. from Pitomaca
- I was on a boat on Tuesday and I was fishing about 50 meters away from the shore. My hook caught something. I thought it was a log, but I easily managed to take it out. I reached with my hand and I took out a human head out of the water - Ivica speaks for 24sata.hr about his disturbing experience.
There was his colleague fisherman not far from him, and he called for help. They could easily see the bone without traces of hair or skin when they used the flashlight to see better.
- The friend brought a hook so we can take out the skull easied from the water. It was heavy. There were water and sand in it. My hook got stuck in the eye socket - claims the fisherman.
When they took out the skull out of the water they immediately called for police who took statements from them and the remains of the human head. There were few teeth left on them so forensics can perform an analysis.
According to the latest information, the skull probably belonged to an older man. The investigation is difficult due to lack of information about the body because the man could fall in Drava river from Varazdin to Pitomaca.
Considering that there were no organic materials on it, the investigators presume that the skull has been in the water for several dozens of years.
