Expert will examine skull discovered at Stinchcomb Wildlife Refuge

Forensic anthropologist Clyde Snow will examine a human skull found Wednesday in Stinchcomb Wildlife Refuge, a state medical examiner’s spokeswoman said Friday.

The skull was found on the ground by children playing in northwest Oklahoma City near Lake Overholser. Identifying the skull could take some time, Snow said. The skull is now at the medical examiner’s Oklahoma City office, spokeswoman Cherokee Ballard said. Snow should examine it next week, she said.

"We’ll see if there is anything we can derive from it and see who this person is,” Ballard said.

Children found other bones Wednesday, but they were from an animal. The refuge is northwest of Council Road and NW 50. has disabled the comments for this article.
