An investigation has been opened by the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office after a hunter reported on Saturday, Nov. 25 that a human skull had been found in Wayne National Forest.

Sheriff Jeff Lawless issued the following release:

"On Saturday 11/25/2017 at about 1:50 PM the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office was notified that possible human remains were found on Wayne National Forrest Land off of CR 5 in Aid Township.

"Deputies and Detectives met with the complainant, a hunter who advised that while hunting on federal forestry land he found a human skull. Deputies were taken several hundred yards into the woods to the area and collected this skull. A search of the area was conducted and another bone believed to be human was also found in the area.

"The investigation is ongoing and the Sheriff’s Office and Lawrence County Coroner’s Office will be providing these bones to experts who can possibly match up dental records and DNA in trying to determine who they belong to."
