Two heads in Chevron?

1.)  From Pirkei d’ R’ Eliezer 38:
וכשבאו למערת המכפלה בא עליהם עשו מהר חורב לחרחר ריב ואמ' שלי הוא מערת המכפלה מה עשה יוסף שלח לרכוש מזלות ולירד למצרים ולעלות כתב עולם שהיה בינם לכך הלך נפתלי שהוא אילה שלוחה חושים בן דן היה פגום באזנו ובלשונו אמ' להם מפני מה אנחנו יושבין כאן הראהו באצבעו אמ' לו בשביל האיש הזה שאינו מניח אותנו לקבור את יעקב שלף את חרבו והתיז את ראשו של עשו ונכנס הראש לתוך מערת המכפלה ואת גוייתו שלח לארץ אחוזתו בהר שעיר

And he cut off Eisav’s head, and it entered  Me’aras haMachpeilah, and his body was sent to the land of his inheritance on Mt. Seir

2.) Shmuel II 4:12

But the head of Ish-boshes they took and buried in the grave of Avner in Chevron.
