Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office is asking for any information that solve a decades old mystery.

In the late 1980’s, some youth were playing in the woods – on FR 2210 between FR 1127 and FR1120, North of Verona – when they came across a skull they believed to be human.

It was disclosed to a parent who told the kids to throw it back where they’d found it. Authorities say the skull was then tossed out in the weeds.

The family that lived at the home subsequently moved and many other families over the years lived in the area.

The Sheriff’s Office says it’s hoping someone has knowledge or possession of a skull and they might not be 100% of the skulls origins and are willing to have theirs inspected.
