Skull found floating in Leon River


A skull found floating in the Leon River on Sunday has been sent off for a forensic study. Gatesville Police Chief Nathan Gohlke said they hope to determine the age and possible identification of the skull.

The skull was spotted by visitors in a city park in the 100 block of East Leon St. They were able to fish the skull to land and then called police. 

Gohlke says the skull appears to be quite old, but there was no immediate indication that the skull was connected to any recent cases.
