FARMINGTON, CT (WFSB) -

An inventory taken at the University of Connecticut Health Center shows 15 human skulls and an entire human skeleton were unaccounted for.

The report shows more than 100 total items are not accounted for.

Health center officials told the state they believe the items were disposed of without the necessary paperwork.

The hospital released a statement to Eyewitness News saying "The purchased fifteen educational skull models and its parts are still in use at UConn School of Medicine. However, it is challenging to physically tag this type of inventory, especially after it is disassembled into many parts during medical student, dental student and resident education, training and skills-based learning."
