A hiker reported finding a human skull in a wooded area in Placer County near the Town of Truckee and Highway 89 on Sunday, September 16.
Placer County Sheriff detectives responded to the area and located a human skull that appeared to have been exposed to the environment for a lengthy period of time.
A second, larger search of the area by detectives and Search & Rescue personnel revealed several additional bone fragments that may also be human. In addition to the human remains, a weathered and apparently old campsite was located near the remains.
Although both the remains and the campsite appear to both have been exposed to the environment for a lengthy period of time, detectives and coroner investigators are still working to establish a connection between the two.
The Placer County Coroner’s office is conducting additional follow-up in an attempt to identify the remains. Cause and manner of death are still under investigation.
