YUBA CITY, CA (KCRA/NBC) - A dog digging obsessively in its Yuba City, CA, backyard tipped off its owner to a number of unusual items, including doll fragments and a ceramic pot, along with human and animal skeletal remains, police said Thursday.

"When we pulled out the head of the doll, it was very creepy looking," Kind said.
