…and don’t know if it was because the firewood was too expensive but a human skull was found in a fire pit in a Trenton, Michigan yard after the 4th of July weekend by a new homeowner. The home they bought had been owned by the late Mark Eberly, who recently left this earth after ending up in a shootout with police in Cumberland, Tennessee. The story doesn’t say why he was in a shootout with the cops but that human skull might be a clue. The neighbors say Eberly had nightly fires in the pit before he moved away sometime in early March. Makes you wonder if the neighbors new what wood smelled like when it burns or they did know and wondered more about why he never asked them over for dinner or what he was cooking. But here’s what I don’t get. The new home owners who are cooperating with the police, why didn’t they notice the skull in the pit when they were looking to buy the house. I mean when you buy the house you also get the yard too, right?. So wouldn’t you want to inspect the yard as much as you would the house. Wouldn’t you be the least bit interested in seeing how the fire pit was maintained? And what about the real estate agent? Isn’t it their job to find as many selling points as possible about about the house and wouldn’t the fire pit be one? I know human skulls wouldn’t be a good selling point but how did the agent overlook that or did they? The story doesn’t give the name of the new owners but I wonder if their last name is Adams?
