WESTPORT, Wash. — The human skull found in a crab pot off the Washington coast is being sent to the FBI crime lab at Quantico, Va.
Grays Harbor Undersheriff Dave Pimentel tells KXRO (http://www.kxro.com ) investigators hope to extract DNA, which may lead to an identification.
The partial human skull was found Friday morning in a crab pot about 2 miles off of Westport. The fisherman set the pot the previous week in water 90-to-100 feet deep.
An anthropologist in King County confirmed the skull is human.
