(MURFREESBORO) A human skull, unrelated to the search for missing youth Devin Bond, was found Tuesday (11/12/2019) in the southeastern area of Rutherford County, sheriff's detectives said.

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 examiner's 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.
