Night of the Corpse Skull Bong

In the course of talking to police about an unrelated burglary, a Texas teen revealed that he and two friends had robbed a grave, used a garden tool to break off the skull of its occupant, made the skull into a bong and smoked marijuana out of it. Police didn't believe the story at first, but when they arrived at the home of one the fingered friends to ask about incident, the friend "regurgitated in his plate of food," according to the Houston Chronicle — which clued cops in that they may have been on the right track. The skull belonged to an 11-year-old boy who had died in 1921. The teen who first confessed was sentenced to eight months in county jail for "abuse of a corpse."
