The mysterious discovery of a human skull that was found at Mud Lake in Boulder County has puzzled the Boulder County sheriff’s and coroner’s offices who are still unable to identify the skull.
Even more baffling is the fact they have not been able to identify any more human remains or determine how the person died.
Reports indicate that the skull was found by a hiker on Oct. 2 in unincorporated Boulder County near the town of Nederland.
An announcement was made by the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday that it received the results of an anthropological examination of the skull and believed it belonged to a man between the ages of 30 and 60 years old and estimated the skull was in the environment for less than five years.
Detectives have not found any matching missing-person cases, and the coroner’s office has not yet been able to identify the person.
There are also searches that have been conducted in the area but they have not turned up any other remains or evidence in the case. Investigations are still underway and the case remains open and under investigation. Anyone with information they believe may assist in the investigation is asked to contact Detective Mark Spurgeon at 303-441-3615.
