Need help identifying mystery part for my new Titanium [Pics inside]

Just bought a 2012 Focus Titanium Sedan (ingot silver) and absolutely love it. I found a part in the trunk though, need help seeing what it is. The was bought used with 8,000 miles. I did not purchase this from a Ford dealer either...

This is something you'd think the car lot would have tried to find before selling... no idea what it is though.

Looks a little like one of the rear seat heater ducts. Look under the back of your front seats.

Probably the resonator was just simply removed.
