In August, the Edinburg Police Department asked the Texas Rangers for assistance with an unusual case: A parishioner at a local church had turned over a human skull to a priest.

"The parishioner stated to the priest the skull was used for witchcraft and spiritual healing," according to Texas Department of Public Safety records obtained by Channel 5 News under the Texas Public Information Act.

Edinburg police Chief Cesar Torres said the parishioner turned over the skull to a priest at a church in the McCook area. 

The skull had reportedly been in the family's possession for 40 years.
