(AP) - Another skull said to be linked to a man who has been under intensive investigation since being accused of sex offenses has come to light, police said Monday. Sgt. Laura Mulloy, a spokeswoman for the Kansas City Police Department, said someone reported having purchased a skull from Robert Berdella, a flea market merchant, and wondered if police were interested in it. Mulloy said she believed police got the skull "late last week," and that it apparently was of the type used in medical schools because it has an artificially hinged jaw. "But we're checking it out anyway," she said. Berdella, 39, is being held without bond after being charged last week with seven counts of sodomy, one of felonious restraint and one of first- degree assault. The alleged offenses involve a 22-year-old man who escaped from Berdella's Hyde Park area April 2, saying he had been held there for five days of torture and sex abuse. Police who went to investigate reported finding two skulls, one of them identified as human, another artificial, inside the home. Later, another skull identified as being human was unearthed in the backyard, along with bone fragments of undetermined origin. Mulloy said Monday that police have custody of another skull which was said to have been purchased from Berdella, who sold a variety of unusual items at a shop called Bob's Bazaar Bizarre in the Westport Flea Market. "We have not completed the required testing," Mulloy said.' 'We don't know yet if it will have any value to the investigation." She also said police did not have information on the apparent age and sex of the skulls found earlier. "We don't have that done yet," she said. "We're working on it." Since the case came to light, police have received queries from authorities working on missing persons cases in a number of areas. Mulloy said police in Des Moines, Iowa, who have been investigating the disappearance of newspaper boys Johnny Gosch, missing since 1982, and Eugene Martin, missing since 1984, were sending records. "When we get them, we'll make a comparison," she said. Police say they have about 500 pieces of evidence so far, and that the investigation could take months. Among the items seized from Berdella's home, according to testimony at a hearing when his bond was revoked, were about 200 pictures of young men in sexual bondage situations. Some of those pictures, police said, were of the 22-year-old man who was wearing only a dog collar when he fled Berdella's home. Democrats ^ Beech may try to override TOPEKA (AP) - As talk surfaced of a possible attempt to override Gov. Mike Hayden's veto of a $30 million appropriation intended for property tax relief, committees prepared Monday to reconvene to try to settle remaining issues before the Legislature returns April 27. While Republican legislative leaders said they would work to sustain Hayden's veto, House Minority Leader Marvin Barkis and Senate Ways and Means Chairman Gug Bogina said they would lead efforts to override. Hayden Sunday used his line item veto power to kill two $15 million appropriations that Bogina succeeded in amending into a funding bill during Senate debate last week. Half of that money was to be returned to cities and counties through the local property tax reduction fund, and the other $15 million was to go to school districts to ease property tax pressure. Hayden said there was no guarantee the money would be spent on property tax relief, and it was premature to know whether the state could afford to give up that revenue. He said if it is determined during the wrap-up session starting in two weeks that there is money for tax relief it should be provided to the individual income taxpayers who paid it. Hayden and Legislature are working this session with a revenue surplus, most of it coming from an income tax windfall the state derives because of federal tax changes. Most Kansas taxpayers owe the state more income tax this year because they owe the federal government less. Barkis said he would lead an effort to override Hayden's veto. "We'll see who is serious about tax relief, since it's increasingly clear that Mike Hayden isn't," Barkis said. "In the last two years, both the House and Senate have passed income tax reform packages, and the governor hasn't liked either of them. "For him to now veto $30 million in property tax relief is a clear indication that he's not interested in tax relief." During floor debate on his amendments, Bogina, a Republican, said the windfall represents tax money "extorted" from state taxpayers and should be returned to them. Bogina said Monday that he would lead the veto override effort in the Senate if it is successful in the House. Speaker Jim Braden said he will muster all the support he can to sustain Hayden's veto. He said he agrees with Hayden that nobody knows at this point whether the state can afford both $30 million worth of property tax relief as well as tax reductions for individual income taxpayers. A clearer picture of the state's spending should emerge this week, with a special committee on prison overcrowding meeting today to decide whether to recommend construction of a new state prison, and an appropriations conference committee starting Wednesday to compromise differences in about 15 funding bills. Awards (Continued from Page 1) Michael Dukakis, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for president. _, "OK, Michael, let's go!" Dukakis whooped after accepting the gold statuette. Backstage, she said, "It's the year oftheDukaki!" The best original movie song of 1987 was "The Time of My Life" from "Dirty Dancing." • The first prize of the night, for best visual effects, went to "Innerspace," a Steven Spielberg-produced fantasy about a test pilot reduced to microscopic size and accidentally injected into the body of a grocery clerk. The award for best animated short film went to "The Man Who Planted Trees." "Young at Heart" was best documentary short subject and "The Ten-Year Lunch: The Wit and Wisdom of the Algonquin Roundtable" was best documentary feature. Best live action short film was ."Ray's Male Heterosexual Dance Hall." The award for makeup went to "Harry and the Hendersons." Comedian Chevy Chase was host for the festivities, carried on live national television by ABC and also broadcast widely overseas. More than 1,000 movie fans had packed bleachers hours in advance to cheer celebrities arriving at the Shrine Auditorium for the ceremonies, where much of the excitement focused on whether Cher would triumph as best actress. Many in the crowd wore shorts and T-shirts, ready for temperatures that rose into the 90s. But the most visible of the lot were seven SOish women with teased blond hair. They carried rubber daggers and wore long white dresses with "Fatal Attraction" printed on the chest in red. (Continued from Page 1) Beech personal property would be assessed at $1 million in 1989. Using the mill levy projected by Biles, that assessment would yield $101,751 in 1989 property taxes. Depreciation would lower the value of the Beech machinery in subsequent years, and in turn the potential tax bill would be reduced. Over 10 years the company's property tax liability on the new property is projected by Biles to be $433,458. Although Beach was granted $20 million worth of bonds, it plans to spend only $18 million to acquire taxable property. The remaining $2 million will be set aside for contin- gencies. Over 10 years the $18 million worth of property would be worth $2.4 million in tax revenue, according to figures compiled by Biles. Although it might cost the city more than $2 million in tax revenue over the next 10 years, Biles said tax forgiveness will work to the city's advantage. "This will be creating manufacturing jobs, which create other jobs," Biles said. "There will be additional families in town paying property taxes. Those people will also be paying water and sewer fees. "So while we're granting the industry tax forgiveness, those employed by the industry will be paying taxes." But it's possible the city will have forgiven more than $2.4 million in tax revenue at the end of 10 years. The mill levy Biles used to figure possible tax revenue is based on a 50 percent increase in property valuation, which Terry Hamblin, director of property valuation for the Kansas Department of Revenue, said might not be realistic. "My gut reaction is to say that's too high," Hamblin said. "It's certainly not a conservative estimate by any stretch of the imagination." But City Manager Dennis Kissinger said 50 percent is a conservative estimate. Kissinger, who has worked as a city manager in Missouri, said he went through reappraisal there when property valuation rose by more than 50 percent.
