(Skull found in the desert)…It was found Wednesday by a Border Patrol agent.
The discovery was made east of Holtville, east of the geothermal plant in the desert. The County Coroner’s office was called in. Deputy Coroner Steven Green says he went to the scene and determined it was a human skull. Green said the area was searched, but no other bones could be found. He said the skull would be sent to a forensic anthropologist for examination. Green said it was hoped an approximate age could be determined. He said the dental work could also possibly provide vital information that could eventually lead to an identification. Green said it appears the person has been dead for over a year.
