Human jaw bones, possibly ‘old’, found in Lake Michigan – CBS Detroit
Difficult, me. (AFP) A human jawbone with more than a dozen teeth was discovered at Silver Lake in Michigan’s northern lower peninsula.
“It looks very old, maybe out of date,” said Oceana County Sheriff Craig Mast. Tell MLive.com.
The jawbone was found on Sunday when someone stepped on it while removing a pier from the lake. It was sent to anthropologists at Michigan State University for analysis.
No other bones were found.
The county has some missing person cases. But Sharif said the jawbone’s age may not fit those investigations.
