LITCHFIELD, Minn. (AP) - Meeker County investigators are still trying to solve the mystery of a human skull found in January.

Officials confirmed Friday that the skull was human and came from a man in his mid-40s. He was either white or Hispanic. But investigators don’t know when or how he died, or the man’s name.

Deputies found the skull in January while responding to a report of an unresponsive man at a home near Litchfield. Seventy-seven-year-old James Webster died at the scene, where officers found a large amount of marijuana and the skull.

Witnesses told investigators the skull had been in the home for about 20 years, and that Webster got it from a friend.

The Meeker County sheriff’s office is asking anyone with information on the skull or Webster’s history to call.
