Human Skull Found In Mercedes, Investigators Search For Clues
The skull of an un-identified man was discovered just yards away from a quiet neighborhood in Mercedes.
Neighbors off of Patricia St. and W. Liberty Dr. remain as puzzled as investigators.
"We are treating the area as a crime scene, and basically we have nothing else," said Mercedes Police Chief Olga Maldonado.
Police have been searching the area since 7 a.m. bringing in heavy duty equipment and K9 units. The area is usually full of dead trees and debree but luckily for investigators the canal was dredged just weeks ago.
Police admit they have little to go on and have not found any other body parts in the area. They plan to keep digging until they find answers.
Police told us they were searching for a missing man in the area just a few weeks ago. As of right now they are unable to make a connection but its something they'll definitely be looking into.
