Man finds human skull in front of his house
A man who was trying to dump refuse spotted a human skull in the front yard of his home and called police.
The skeletal remains first discovered Monday all appear to be from the same person, Carruesco said.
The Kern County Coroner's Office is trying to identify the remains. The coroner is also working to determine the cause of death and how long ago the person died.
