The Roswell Police Department says an investigation was initiated Friday after a city worker reported to authorities that they may have come across a human skull.

According to the RPD’s public information officer, Todd Wildermuth, the object was found next to a water pump station at Cahoon Park near Union Avenue and Riverside Drive at about 2:15 Friday.

“The skull appears to be fairly old and not related to any recent incidents or reports made to RPD,” Wildermuth said. “It is being sent to the state medical investigator in Albuquerque for confirmation of its authenticity.”

Authorities said anyone with potential information regarding the case is asked to call the RPD at 575-624-6770 or Chaves County Crime Stoppers at 888-594-8477.
