Century Old Skull Found In Southern Oregon

By Jim McCoy Thu 11th April NewsKlamath County newsremains found
he Klamath County sheriff's office says it has given tribal officials a century-old skull determined to be that of a Native American girl who died of a bad fall or a similar trauma. The Klamath Falls Herald and News reports a woman found the skull in a newly purchased mobile home. It was in a narrow insulation space below the roof, in a box, wrapped in paper. The Klamath County sheriff's office says a forensics lab estimated the girl's age at 6 to 8 and said the skull dated to nearly 100 years ago. Fractures in the skull led investigators to consider the case a homicide, but given the age of the case and the lack of leads, the sheriff's office released the evidence to the Klamath Tribes.
