WEST WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - Police say part of a human skull has been found in the woods in West Warwick and is being examined for identifying characteristics.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1pWz2nv ) that someone walking in the woods behind Crossbow Lane found the fragment, which authorities say is the top of a human skull.

State police turned the piece over this week to the medical examiner’s office. It is said to have been outside for some time.

State police and West Warwick detectives are looking for additional evidence. They are also going back through missing person files for the last several decades.
