“The mystery is how they ended up there,” said medical examiner Jan Garavaglia, according to ABC News.
“We don't have any way of finding out.”
When examined by medical officials the bones were clearly hundreds of years old and had features of Incas.
According to ABC News, Garavaglia teamed up with researchers from the University of Central Florida and Yale to find the origin of the skulls.
They found cloth, which were used as woven materials and non-human hair.
Researchers said that the skulls were likely brought by tourists or migrants many decades or centuries ago when transporting bones was not against the law.
