Human skull found 11/11/1980 - Hoskins Mound, TX
Hoskins Mound is right next to Danbury, surrounded by small bodies of water
Jane Doe – Hoskins Mound - She is thought to be 12 to 17 years old, Caucasian Female, death estimated to be around 1975 - November 11, 1980 - HUMAN SKULL FOUND IN HOSKINS MOUND in Brazoria County (Torso, limbs, hands not recovered); Sheriff's Office investigation is currently underway in connection with the weekend discovery of a human skull in the Hoskins Mound area, Sheriff's Office Captain Gene Smith said Monday.
Danbury resident was "working some cattle" in a pasture located near CR 203, approximately one half mile off of FM 2004, when he noticed the skull, according to Smith. Sgt. Harry Stiles of the Investigation Division subsequently recovered the skull, which appeared to have been in the pasture for an extended period of time. Smith noted that even though the skull appeared bleached out, the teeth were intact except for two upper teeth which appeared to be missing. No dental work was evident. "It was pretty well weather-beaten," Smith said of the skull. He added that the skull showed no sign of fracture or gunshot.
A Monday search of the site resulted in the discovery of two additional bones, which investigators believe to be arm and leg bones. The bones were found within close proximity of the skull, which was located near a drainage ditch, Smith said.
Interesting thing about this map is that it shows how remote Hoskins Mound is, yet is easy to reach just by driving to the south-western tip of Galveston and then over the San Luis Pass to the mainland...

Skull Found – Galveston - August 15, 1980 - A human skull was found on West Beach near 18-mile road Friday evening by two beachgoers. The skull was partially buried in the edge of a sand dune. The people who discovered the skull took it to Galveston Island State Park where they called police.
Sgt. Danny Perez of the Sheriff's Department said the discovery of the skull is a new development in an investigation that has been going on since Monday 8/10/80 when a jawbone was found on West Beach near 7-mile road. Since then, a human leg bone was found at 11-mile road and a human forearm was found on the beach near Galveston Island State Park. After the skull was returned to the area where it was found, Galveston Police and Galveston County Medical Examiner Dr. W. M. Korndorffer searched the sand and found no other human remains. Korndorffer said the skull may be that of a young female; the skull contained no wisdom teeth which would indicate the person was young. Based on an initial examination of the skull, Korndorffer said it may match the jawbone that was found earlier in the week.
A small amount of blonde hair was still attached to the skull and a handful of hair was in the sand below the skull. Korndorffer said there are missing persons in the area who match the description of the skull, believed to be a teenaged female. He then said "the rest of the skeleton will probably show up later." He said he doesn't believe any more bones are in the area where the skull was found. Korndorffer said he will put all the bones together Saturday morning, and try to see if they belong to the same person. He said it is too early to guess at the cause of death until more tests are performed.
