    This article says it looked too small to be an adult.I thought of Adji Desir and Haleigh Cummings.I'm also looking into to this as a possible small adult female.

    I wouldn't put too much on the assessment of the size of the skull by the person who found it.

    The skull has a very prominent brow ridge, which would suggest to me that it's male. But then again, I am not an anthropologist.

    It looks rather clean to me, like it hadn't been out in the elements for too long.

    Doesn't appear to be Adji since I believe he had his those two front teeth. I believe Haleigh did as well.

    Hopefully someone can figure this out soon!

    The teeth probably fell out after death, so that doesn't disqualify them, though I doubt it's either of them. It doesn't look like a child's skull to me. You would see very distinct cranial sutures if it was a child, and the teeth look well-developed.

    I agree,it does look too clean to me too.It honestly looks kind of staged to me and the skull doesn't looked chewed on to me.Has there been any new information on this skull found?

    Yeah... could be staged...

    I dunno... just the way it sits there neatly on top of the vegetation and not in the middle of it makes it look like it was just dropped there recently. Remembering the Caylee trial and the roots that grew through the skull in the six months the remains were there and this is nothing like that.
