A human skull, unrelated to the search for missing youth Devin Bond, was found Tuesday in the southeastern area of Rutherford County, sheriffs detectives said.

The skull was carried by a farm dog to its owners who notified the sheriffs office.

Detective Lt. Todd Sparks said no other remains have been found in this remote area of the county.

Detectives are investigating but are uncertain from where the dog discovered the skull.

“The skull is currently in possession of the medical examiners office where it will be examined for preliminary identifying characteristics,”Sparks said.

Detectives are investigating any potential leads that may help determine the identity of this person.
