    NE - Ashland, Skull found on trail at Carol Joy Holling Camp, Salt Creek, Jun'17

    A human skull along Salt Creek just southeast of Ashland.

    The boy was walking along a trail at Carol Joy Holling Camp and crossed the creek when he spotted the skull sometime between 5:30 and 6 p.m.

    It's unclear how old the remains are.

    A woman named Anwesha Dey was swept away by floodwaters in Lincoln sometime in 2015. Dey's dental records were compared to the skull, and they did not match.

    The skull is believed to be that of a female.

    The pathologist was able to say, with about 95 percent certainty, that the skull had belonged to a woman, he said. But Lamprecht could not say how old the woman had been, or how long the skull had been in the water.

    A boy spotted the skull from a trail at Camp Carol Joy Holling southeast of Ashland on June 7, not far from where Salt Creek joins the Platte River. Antelope Creek, which Dey fell into, feeds Salt Creek just north of the Devaney Sports Center.

    Human skull found in Salt Creek remains unidentified

    A forensic dental autopsy was performed on June 10 and excluded several "cold cases" in Nebraska. Teeth from the skull were extracted and sent to the UNMC lab where DNA was collected. The DNA results were entered into CODIS (a DNA indexing system). The skull and dental information was then entered into National Crime Information Center as an unidentified person.

    The skull was sent to an anthropologist and he determined the skull to be from a 19 to 30 year old male with a Caucasoid ancestry.

    The skull was sent to the University of North Texas Center for Human Identification Wednesday for further mitochondrial DNA testing. This test will expand possible markers for a "hit" in CODIS. After all the testing is complete, the skull will be sent back to the sheriff's office, where it will be stored.

    An anthropologist determined the skull, found June 7 by a boy at Camp Carol Joy Holling southeast of Ashland, likely belonged to a white male between the age of 19 and 30, Sheriff’s Capt. Dave Lamprecht said Wednesday.

    That contradicts the earlier opinion of a pathologist, who had said — with 90 percent certainty — the skull likely belonged to a woman.

    Investigators are still trying to determine how the skull’s owner died, and when. The University of Nebraska Medical Center used a tooth to extract DNA, which was entered into the FBI’s DNA index system, Lamprecht said.
    And the skull was sent Wednesday to the University of North Texas Center for Human Identification for mitochondrial DNA analysis, which can provide more information to help find a match in the FBI’s DNA index.
