Man Who Found Head in Bucket: I Thought It Was a Joke

Pat McMahon Contributor

The man who found a human head in a bucket over the weekend said the bucket had been sitting on the bank of a canal for nearly three days before he finally decided to investigate.

William Hernandez, who works at a junk yard across the street from where the head was found in Dania Beach, said he thought the bloody bucket was filled fish guts because people often fished from the bank of the canal.

When he got closer, the man said he could see the face of the body-less head sticking out of the cement.

“At first I thought it was a joke,” Hernandez said. “I thought someone was pulling a prank, but then I saw it was real.”
