Police Investigate After Skull Found Near Cheney

By  | 

CHENEY, Kan. (AP) _ Investigators are trying to determine the
identity of a skull found near Cheney in Sedgwick County.
The Sedgwick County sheriff's office says the skull was
discovered Jan. 29 by people considering buying the property.
The sheriff's office announced Thursday that an anthropologist
determined the skull belonged to a black woman who was 35 to 50
years old.
Police say it isn't clear yet whether the woman was a crime
victim.
KFDI reports (http://bit.ly/AvcvVS) that human remains also were
found in a rural area near Cheney last March. The skull and other
body parts were found near a creek. An anthropologist determined
those remains belonged to a black woman in her late teens to
mid-twenties. No leads have emerged in that case.
