    Seems to be a male could have been there for a year per later reports.

    LOS ANGELESóLos Angeles police are investigating the discovery of a human skull in Griffith Park.

    Officer Rosario Herrera says a hiker found the skull shortly after 5:30 p.m. Monday in the 4,200-acre park. The Los Angeles County coroner's office says the skull is believed to be a man's. However, there's no information yet on how the man died or how long the skull had been at the park.

    Skyline Trail is a dirt road off Griffith Park Drive, above Zoo Drive and the Los Angeles River channel, which skirts the north edge of the park. Human remains turn up from time to time in Griffith Park, which is roughly 6.5 square miles and one of the largest urban parks in the nation. In January 1990, the Los Angeles Times headlined a story "Bodies Blot Griffith Park Scenery and Reputation" after 10 corpses turned up in the park in the space of two years. That spike included the discovery of six bodies in the space of 15 days in 1989.

    An anthropologist working as a member of the team said Tuesday that she believes that the skull belongs to an adult male and that the skull may have been at the park for up to two years.

    Found a blog with some interesting discussion on this case, including a comment from someone who claims to be the man who found the skull.

    No updates or ruleouts on his Namus listing. Dentals available. DNA tests complete but not yet submitted.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)
