A pair of Connecticut junk haulers was stunned to learn on Friday that two skulls picked up at the cluttered home of a deceased man on the day before Halloween were human remains, not made of plastic as they had thought.

The skulls were among thousands of occult and satanic-related items that David Odice and Charlie Inzucchi of The Junkluggers Junk Removal Co. cleared out of the Fairfield home where Robert L. DeVitto lived until his death two weeks ago at age 56.

“Being Halloween makes this real creepy and spooky, especially considering what else we found in the house,” Odice said Friday. “There were thousands of things related to the occult: magazines, videos, crystals, amulets, all kinds of new age and metaphysical stuff.”

Police said they will know in about two weeks the ages of the skulls and whether a criminal investigation is required.
