FRUIT HEIGHTS — A pedestrian walking along a frontage road in Fruit Heights discovered what appears to be a human skull Thursday night.

The pedestrian found the skull about 5:50 p.m. along the frontage road near U.S. 89. The skull appears to have been sitting near the road "for some time," Davis County Sheriff's Sgt. DeeAnne Servey said.

Police were waiting for a forensic team Thursday night and had not yet searched for additional bones in the area in order to not disturb the scene, Servey said.

No additional information about the finding was available Thursday.
