The frontal portion of a partial human skull was found on an island in the Clark Fork River near the Turah Fishing Access by a crew spraying for invasive weeds. The area is prone to heavy spring flooding; after extensive searching with cadaver dogs, no other human remains were found. Forensic analysis of the skull fragment indicates the decedent to be a small-statured adult, most likely male, of an unknown age and ethnic heritage. The condition of the skull suggests that it had been skeletonized for several years at a minimum. There was no trauma.

Possibly Native American. There was a Fort in Missoula for a long time.
