Authorities say a farm worker found a human skill in a Bourbon County creek while checking on horses.

Bourbon County Coroner Dee Gee Roe tells news outlets that the skull was found Saturday at a Paris farm and taken to the state medical examiner’s office in Frankfort on Sunday.

Roe says there was no visible trauma to the skull. She says investigators could not determine a gender or age from the skull.

Roe says cadaver dogs searched the creek for miles over the weekend but did not find any other bones.
