    More details in this video: http://www.fox26houston.com/news/322515862-video

    The remains were found in a black trash bag and had a head and hair. The person who found the remains said it seemed to be a young female. A gun was also found but it's unclear if the gun was in the bag with the remains or just in the same general area. Picture of the gun in the video.

    I am local to this, roughly 9 miles away. We don’t live on the lake but I drive by there every time I go into the “big town” to shop.
    I don’t think there is a lot of public access to the lake. There is a fishing spot on the other side that’s always busy. On the Huffman side (east side) there are lots of houses and a few businesses, a lot which flooded out with Harvey. The 1960 bridge is fairly big and wide and busy. Maybe late at night things get quiet, not out late at night. At 9 pm or so it’s still pretty well used. The water under it flows south so if some one was to toss something off the bridge I would expect it to wash up on the other side of the bridge. I guess they could have tossed it in near the edge and had it wash up quickly without much drift. There is another bridge further up stream that’s in the Kingwood area. The lake is pretty busy and the marinas would have access for someone to toss something overboard, most of the neighborhoods have private marinas. The private neighborhoods on that side are fairly nice. There is a wilderness park on the north side that you can pay to use that would provide lake access.

    I share the story with my local pages as no one seemed to be talking about it. Obviously it’s all off the record but I’m keeping an ear out.

    Lets see if this works. I grabbed the picture from the news stories. He yellow dot is where the news seems to indicate the bag was found. Some locals are indicating the green dot is where they saw the forensic vehicle. They may be searching the shorelines in the area. The black circle is the wilderness area that I believe has boat access. Kingwood bridge is highlighted in blue. The 1960 bridge is 6 lanes across total. The lake has lots of floating debris post Harvey. It also has a few small islands. It’s a reservoir that’s backed up with a dam on the south side.

    A mother-daughter duo found human remains while they were working as volunteer cleaning up a Texas lake on Friday, authorities said.
    The volunteers for Texas Adaptive Aquatics made the grisly discovery while cleaning the area near Lake Houston. They discovered a severed head in a plastic bag, according to FOX26 Houston.

    The volunteers said they believe the head was of a young women with red hair. Homicide detectives could not confirm the age, sex or ethnicity of the individual, according to FOX26.

    They also found a gun near by but not sure if it's connected.

    There does not seem to be any confirmation from LE that the head was severed. Waiting on more details.

    A bit unclear on some of the details....what I would like to know if it was just a skull for instance or an actual head in an advanced stage of decomposition for instance . The gun of course , whether or not it was in the bag or not . If not I'd be inclined to believe it isn't connected , considering the head is removed from the rest of the remains that seems more likely at the moment that a sharp blade did the dirty work instead of a relatively small handgun .

    Wonder if this skull belongs to a set of remains, that have already been identified.

    We need a more official source for that info. Do you have a link to a news story saying this?

    I tweeted her to ask about decomp. Hope this is sufficient. [/FONT]

    Thanks! If the reporter is correct than the id can not be any of the Houston cases I listed above.

    There aren't any missing persons cases open for the area that have red hair. I'm trying to find out if it was dyed red or natural. Could be someone never reported, of course. Wondering if I should expand the time for my search (I looked from feb.1-present) ?
