Skull found in Westport crab pot going to FBI lab

The Associated Press

WESTPORT — A human skull found in a crab pot off the Washington coast is being sent to the FBI crime lab at Quantico, Va.

Grays Harbor Undersheriff Dave Pimentel tells KXRO that investigators hope to extract DNA, which may lead to an identification.

The partial human skull was found Friday morning in a crab pot about 2 miles off of Westport. The fisherman set the pot the previous week in water 90 to 100 feet deep.

An anthropologist in King County confirmed the skull is human.

Pimentel says nothing else is known about the skull, including how it got into the crab pot.
