University of Connecticut short of 15 skulls

University of Connecticut short of 15 skullsFifteen human skulls are among more than 100 items that went unaccounted for in a routine inventory at the University of Connecticut Health Center, US.

The Hartford Courant reports UConn officials submitted a report last month to the state auditor's office saying the skulls could not be found during two internal searches and an independent inventory by a private company.

But a UConn spokeswoman, Stephanie Reitz, said Wednesday that the skulls have since been accounted for and were never lost. She says some skulls did not have tags saying when they were acquired but they were always part of a larger collection.

She said it is difficult logistically to add inventory tags to skulls, which are used by UConn Health's medical and dental schools for teaching purposes.
