    This claims that skull was from a male in their 20's and it had been exposed to the elements for up to a decade.

    This is mainly an update to the first story linked.

    Skull Found in Loggy Meadows
    LOCATION: Loggy Meadows DATE: 09-13-2013 TIME: 1030
    CASE NUMBER: VICTIM: CITY:

    On 09/13/13 at approximately 10:30 in the morning near the Loggy Meadows area of the Golden Trout Wilderness, a cattle rancher discovered a skull while checking on his cattle. He alerted the authorities on 09/14/13 when he was able to access a telephone. A deputy, as well as a detective from Violent Crimes, responded to the location. They located the skull where the rancher had reported it was, and the surrounding area was searched. There was no physical evidence of a crime, and there was no identification material. No other human remains were located, and the skull was turned over to the Tulare County Coronerís Office for further investigation.

    The Coronerís Office asked Forensic Anthropologists from Fresno State University for their assistance, something that is typical of these types of investigations. They determined that the skull is that of a male in his early to mid-20ís and had been exposed to the elements for a time period of up to ten years. There were no signs of obvious trauma, and the skull is being processed for DNA by the State of Californiaís Department of Justice DNA Laboratory.

    The Violent Crimes Unit is assisting by cross referencing missing personís reports.

    If you have any information regarding this case, please contact the Coronerís Office at 559-685-2593, the Violent Crimes Unit at 559-735-1898, or access our anonymous tip line, Tip Now, at 559-725-4194 or tcso@tipnow.com.
