A Human Skull Was Found at Brookhaven College Last Night

A man walking his dog at Brookhaven College last night discovered a human skull in a wooded area on the western edge of campus. Police searched the area today and discovered the rest of the skeleton.

The Dallas County Medical Examiner has collected the remains to determine how old they are and who they belong to, but "there's nothing there to suggest any foul play," said Lt. Jay Siegel with the Farmer's Branch Police Department.

Just someone who, you know, decided to crawl into the woods and die.
