A preliminary report from anthropologists at Texas Tech University have identified the skull found in Howard County in mid-December as both human and male, but law enforcement officials remain guarded concerning the investigation.
Sheriff Stan Parker said Wednesday his office has received a partial preliminary report relating to the skull, which was discovered Dec. 20 north of Big Spring.
“The skull has been identified as both human and male,” Parker said. “We're still waiting for a final report, and there's really no telling how long it will take to get it.”
