More Remains Found After Dog Finds Skull In Shelby Co.

Posted: Updated:

SHELBY COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18) Deputies in Shelby County say a human skull was found by a dog on Samples Lane. 

They say around 5:05 p.m Wednesday, deputies got the call that a homeowner’s dog brought them a skull found intact. Deputies responded to the home and confirmed it to be a skull.

The Shelby County coroner now has possession of the skull. It is unclear at this time if the skull came from a nearby graveyard or elsewhere.

The skull was found in good condition, but was described as being ‘old in nature.’ The Shelby County sheriff told LEX 18 that by looking at the skull, it appears this person has been dead for at least one year, maybe several. 

"It's quiet around here, and this is the last thing I expected to see. And there's only, I think, four of us on this road so not much happens back here, so yeah it took me by surprise," said the homeowner, Don Kircher.

The sheriff said they don't have any missing persons cases in Shelby County right now, but they are gathering information about missing people from surrounding counties. 

On Friday, it was announced that they have found more remains. Deputies say this is going to be a long investigation.
