BALDWIN COUNTY, Ala. - Hunters say they found a human skull in a wooded area near an Interstate 65 bridge in Baldwin County.

WKRG-TV reports that Anthony Nelson and his friends made the discovery Saturday afternoon while they were on a hog hunting trip. They found the skull near the General WK Wilson Bridge, more commonly referred to as the Dolly Parton Bridge.

The skull appears to have a bullet hole in the forehead, according to the WRKG report.

Investigators say they recovered more than just the skull at the location.
