Multiple law enforcement agencies are investigating after a partial human skull was discovered in a wooded area near Saline Creek in Natchitoches Parish, according to Natchitoches Parish Sheriff Victor Jones.

It happened just before 2:00 p.m. Saturday.

Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Deputies and members of the Natchitoches Parish Coroner’s Office responded to a possible human skull discovered by hunters in a wooded area off of Savoy Road near Goldonna, La.

The skull will be transported by the Coroner’s Office to the LSU Forensic Anthropology and Computer Enhancement Services Lab for further analysis and investigation.

Sheriff Jones says he has notified Winn Parish Sheriff Cranford Jordan of the discovery since Saline Creek also runs through Winn Parish.
