Mushroom Hunters Find Human Skull Southwest of Salina | Kansas News


SALINA, Kan. (AP) — Mushroom hunters in a rural, wooded area of central Kansas found a human skull, the Saline County Sheriff’s Department reported.

The discovery was made by the two men Tuesday evening about 10 miles southwest of Salina, the Salina Journal reported.

Sheriff’s deputies secured the area, and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation was expected on the scene Wednesday to collect the skull and search for any additional evidence.

There is no information available to identify the skull, Sheriff Roger Soldan said. The skull appeared to have been sitting undisturbed for a long time, Soldan said.
