Work crew finds human remains in Gwinnett County

BUFORD, Ga. (AP) - Gwinnett County police say a human skull and bones have been recovered in Buford.

Cpl. Michele Pihera says a work crew discovered the remains Tuesday afternoon while they were clearing an easement near a pipeline.

Pihera says the skull is almost fully intact and several other bones were found scattered nearby.

Authorities are checking missing persons lists, and the medical examiner's office is doing a forensic examination to try determining the person's identity.

Pihera says it's unclear if the remains are those of a male or female.
