Police investigating discovery of brain-like object at Myers Park

What appears to be a brain, wrapped along with flowers and money, was reportedly found just before 9 a.m. Tuesday at Samuel Myers Park near Gateway Technical College's Racine campus. Police are investigating.

RACINE — A brain found wrapped in foil Tuesday morning at the beach at Samuel Myers Park was deemed “not consistent with a human brain,” according to a Thursday morning email from Racine Police Department Public Information Officer Sgt. Chad Melby.

“At this time it is unsure what type of animal it is,” Melby said.

Melby told The Journal Times that a police investigation is continuing.

Racine Police were dispatched to the beach off 11th Street at 8:57 a.m. on Tuesday, shortly after the items were discovered by a passerby. Flowers and money were also reportedly found in the package.

The discovery was announced on the Racine Uncensored Facebook page and was posted by James Senda, who said in the posting that he made the discovery. Senda could not be reached for comment.
