Human skull discovery launches search for more remains in Cleveland area

A resident on CR 325 off of FM 1010 on Friday reportedly discovered a human skull in their yard. It is believed the resident’s dog found the skull in a wooded area that surrounds the home.

According to Liberty County Sheriff’s Capt. Ken DeFoor, only the top part of the skull was recovered. The lower mandible has not been found nor have any teeth been discovered.

Texas EquuSearch volunteers are scouring an area near the home in the hopes that more bones will be discovered.

DeFoor said the resident claims that the dog found another bone in recent days. However that bone was thrown into the woods because the resident thought it belonged to an animal. Researchers have tried to relocate the bone but so far have been unsuccessful.

DeFoor says there is no way to determine the age of the skull, how long it has been in the woods or the identity of the deceased without DNA testing.

As soon as more information is known, an update will be posted.
