A HUMAN head has been found in a cave in the Sierra de las Villas in Jaen.
Three cavers, members of the Alto Guadalquivir Speleology Group, came across the gruesome find during a routine exploration, but have been banned from revealing the exact location until an investigation has been completed.
But reports suggest the head composed of the skull and part of the jaw.
The bones were handed over to the Guardia Civil and Judicial Police officers, who have begun an inquiry to clarify the ‘possible legal and archaeological’ implications. Tests are being carried out to determine circumstances and personal details, and missing persons’ records are being checked.
