On February 1, 2015, at approximately 6:30 pm, a local hunter found a human skull on property that he leases for hunting and contacted the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office.


MCSO Detectives say that the hunter was moving his deer stand in the woods near the intersection of highway 98 and Hillmoor Road when he came upon the skull.


The skull has been turned over to Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences for identification. “We are waiting on a report from DFS on the identity, however we do have a couple of possibilities but will not know for sure until we receive the report,” said Sheriff Sam Cochran.


As of today, no other skeletal remains have been found. MCSO will continue to search for evidence and is awaiting any identification from DFS.
