In May of 2011, Osama bin Laden was killed by a team of Navy SEALs and hours later, his body was thrown into the Arabian Sea. Now, eight years later, a woman walking along a beach in England has found a shell that looks just like the terrorist leader. Debra Oliver explained that she was out for a walk on Winchelsea Beach while celebrating her 42nd wedding anniversary with her husband, Mark, when she was "drawn to the curious-looking" shell.

Once she saw how much the shell, which is likely from an oyster, resembled the al-Qaeda leader, she said she "fell apart laughing."

Debra explained, "It’s not that often you find a seashell that looks like anyone at all, so finding Osama bin Laden was amazing. We’d all gone for a walk on the beach, which is covered in millions and millions of shells and pebbles. I was drawn to this curious-looking shell, and went to pick it up. When I looked at it properly up close, I thought it looked like Jesus. I then saw a turban on the top, and realized who was staring up at me in the palm of my hand — Osama bin Laden."

No word on what the Olivers plan to do with their special shell.
