Prehistoric American Indian Skull Found in Kansas City
Two teenagers in Kansas City have stumbled upon the skull and tooth of a woman that is many centuries old. The discovery of the skull was initially believed to be that of a homicide victim, particularly since it was found with a puncture on the top of the skull, like that caused by a bullet.
However, forensic anthropologists have identified the skull as having belonged to a mongoloid female of a historic or prehistoric era. The tooth also shows signs of wear that is consistent with earlier human populations of American Indian origin.
State officials will send a report to the American Indian tribes of the area and will hold onto the remains until one of the tribes formally requests possession of it.
