    UT - Fruit Heights, WhtFem Skeletal on hillside, Feb'15 - Theresa Greaves

    Authorities are investigating what appears to be a human skull found by a walker on a hill next to the Frontage Road in Fruit Heights Thursday evening. The man, who frequently walks in the area, called the Davis County Sheriff's Office just after 5:30 p.m. reporting he had found the skull. In addition to the Davis County Sheriff's Office, the state medical examiner's office and a forensic anthropologist were called to the scene.

    The skull appears to have been in the area for some time. "It's hard to determine at this point how long it's been there," Servey said, and it may take a month or two to make that determination. Investigators will try to match dental records to help with that identification.

    Fruit Heights is a city of 4,700 about 20 miles north of Salt Lake City. When they speak of using dental records that suggests they already may have someone in mind.

    Police: ‘meticulous investigation’ underway after skull, other remains found in Davis County
    ...

    Police said earlier in the week this is a homicide investigation until they learn otherwise, and in an update issued Saturday by the Davis County Sheriff’s Office authorities stated they are focusing their search efforts, “on the area surrounding the main gravesite which is toward the top of the hill. The gravesite meaning the area containing the majority of skeletal remains.”

    The skull was found farther down the hill than the other remains, which official said could have occurred due to weather or animals shifting the remains. They also said the skull’s shape may have caused it to roll.

    Wasn't there also a young man who went missing near there - Stephen or Steven?

    Ted Bundy killed a few around this area in the mid seventies who were never found... Hope they can identify this person soon. RIP.

    Yes - thank you.

    That is quite a distance then from where he disappeared to this UID.

    This is a woman missing from Davis Co., since 1975, linked to Ted Bundy possibly.

    Nancy Perry Baird. Missing from Layton & is 5 miles from Fruit Heights.

    Human bones have been found in the same area where a skull was discovered.

    Reposting what I put on Reddit:

    When I heard about it I immediately thought of Kiplyn Davis (who disappeared 70-some miles away), but that's because I had just watched a Discovery ID episode about her case earlier that day. There are quite a few people missing in the area, mostly from Salt Lake City (most notably Susan Powell).

    I'm not a forensic anthropologist, but the skull looks to me like it probably belongs to a female:
    • The upper margins of the eye sockets have sharper ridges, which is characteristic of females
    • The superciliary arch looks very small (the arch is small in humans but is more prominent in males)

    It also looks Caucasian:
    • Caucasians tend to have a narrow nasal aperture (while people of African origin have a wider, broader aperture)
    • The eye sockets of Caucasians also have a more rectangular, "aviator glasses" shape (while Africans tend to have more of straight rectangular shape and Asians have more circular orbits)
    • The nasal sill looks more angular

    Based on this, I think the skull likely belongs to a Caucasian female.

    Obviously don't quote me on this; I'm not a forensic anthropologist and I also don't have a mandible to go on. It's just something I've always had a strong interest in and am studying. JMO

    Utah is Ted Bundy territory. It made me think of Debra Jean Kent who is missing from Bountiful. It looks like Bountiful is not very far from Fruit Heights. Maybe half hour? Hard to tell on map.

    Actually Nancy Perry Biard is missing from Layton, Utah which is a mile from Fruit Heights.

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/2630dfut.html

    She was in East Layton working at a service station and disappeared. I think it's very possible this could be her. Fruit Heights is on the South East side of Layton.

    Stephen Koecher, but I think he had driven to Las Vegas, and went missing in that area.

    I thought the same thing when I saw this until I remembered that he had driven to Las Vegas.
