No DNA match has been found yet in the case of the portion of a human skull that was found by a crab fisherman.
The FBI entered the DNA profile into a Combined DNA Index System and no matches were found. However, the profile indicated that the skull is that of a female. It has still not been determined how old the skull is.
The partial skull was found by a crab fisherman no February 21 while he was crabbing off approximately 2.3 miles off the beach of Westport at a depth of about 100 feet. The fisherman found the skull in one of his pots that were set the week of February 9.
The Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office sent the remains to the King County Medical Examiner's Office where an anthropologist examined it, and then it was sent to the FBI.
The medical examiner believed the skull belonged to a younger person, but was unable to determine age. The person is believed to be deceased for a long period of time.
More analysis are expected from the FBI in the next couple of weeks.
