We're continuing our investigation into the human skull that 12-year-old RJ Brandt brought to school last month. For whatever reason, RJ hasn't told us where he got it, so we've been talking to the people who know him to try to get a lead.
Last week, we talked to RJ's uncle and a man from the Brandts' church who's been trying to mentor RJ. We also spoke to a police detective who knew the Brandt family when they lived in Biloxi, and we had another conversation with RJ himself.
In this update, we talked to the wife of RJ's mentor, who has a less positive opinion of the boy than her husband does.

Coming up this week, we're expecting the reconstruction of the skull's face to be ready. We're also planning to interview or re-interview people close to RJ to try to nail down where exactly he got that skull.
Where do you think RJ got the skull? Review the case documents and tell us your theories.
