On the 14th day of November, 1997, local residents out for a walk found a skull along the North Saskatchewan River, between Lloydminster and St. Walburg, SK. The skull was turned over to RCMP. A search of the area produced more remains. Examination of the skull by the University of Saskatchewan Department of Archaeology revealed it to be that of a 35 - 40 year old of Native origin. The gender was unidentified. This case is being investigated by the Office of the Chief Coroner and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
I wonder why they couldn't determine the gender.

Here is the explanation to the difficulty identifying the gender:
Similar attempts to put a name to a face were made in 1998 when RCMP released a sketch based on a skull that was found by hikers on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River between Lloydminster and St. Walburg on Nov. 14, 1997. A search of the area yielded more remains - believed to be those of an aboriginal man or woman, aged 35 to 40 years, who had been dead about three to five years at the time of the discovery. Found near an Edmonton advertising sign that had also washed in on the swollen river, it's suspected the bones may have likewise originated from Alberta. Walker says the gender has remained undetermined because of the shape of the skull and scarcity of other bones. Although the shape initially pointed to the likelihood of a female, Walker determined it had been slightly misshapen by a cradle board, traditionally used by First Nations people to carry an infant. "The cradle board has flattened the back of the skull out; it gives the appearance of being female, when in actual fact that could be a male. It's got some features that are male-like."
Thanks Cubby for finding the article.
