BAKER, La. (AP) - A man retrieving items from an abandoned home in Baker spotted a human skull that police say may be the remains of a man last seen in 2012.

Police Chief Mike Knaps tells The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1rgfeCu) the man spotted the skull under a pile of junk left inside.

Knaps says the East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner’s Office and forensic anthropologists with LSU’s FACES lab were called to the scene.

He says a full skeleton was found inside the house Thursday morning.

Knaps said an initial examination of the scene didn’t turn up signs of foul play.

He says the skeleton hasn’t been identified, but police suspect it is the remains of a man related to the family who owns the house.
