Czech cops who used a suspected murder victims skull as an ornament are being sued by the dead mans relatives. The mans skeleton was found three years ago but the murder investigation was closed because it was not possible to find out how the man had died. But the body remained unidentified until recently when a new computer program allowed police to identify the body had belonged to missing Francis Vandas by taking a scan of the skull. But after it was cleaned the skull ended up being used as a bookend with a police cap on the top by officers at Volary, in the Czech Republic. They even took pictures of the skull, which are now the subject of a legal case by the mans family, and posted them on a social networking site. Relative Ruzena Breznanova, 59, said: When I turned up to collect the remains I saw the skull sitting on a shelf next to a beer mug with a police cap on it. It was shocking. The chief of homicide led me into his office, took a cap off this skull and handed it to me saying heres your brother-in-law. I was really appalled. When the womans complaint ended up in local newspapers readers pointed out that the snaps had even been posted on a social media site. UT
