Human skull discovered in Jasper County


JASPER COUNTY - by Scott Lawrence


A man who was deer hunting discovered a human skull and the Jasper County Sheriff's Office is investigating, according to information Capt. Bob Walker provided to KFDM News.


The deer hunter discovered the skull Tuesday night in a wooded area about 100 yards off the road just north of Jasper.


Deputies also discovered pieces of vertebrae.


The Sheriff's Office sent the skull to an anthropologist and Sheriff Mitchel Newman is waiting for the results. He's hoping to learn the person's sex, the estimated age and how long the skull had been in the wooded area.


The Sheriff's Office plans to dig to determine if there are more human remains.
