Video: "I found a human skull" in Cheesman Park

Cheesman Park: It's not just for weddings and Frisbee.

As the onetime Mount Prospect Cemetery, it's also apparently a good place to pick up bones of Denver's former "villains, robbers and those that had a lot of malfeasance in their character," according to this presentation by a guy who says he found half a human skull near the pavilion. He put it on his mantel.

Some people have all the luck.
