ST. AMANT - Sheriff's deputies confirmed today they're investigating a skull found in Ascension Parish this weekend.

Major Kevin Hanna said two men found the skull, which appeared to be human, while they were hunting near Hwy. 429 and 22 east of St. Amant.

Hanna said deputies are searching the area for clues. He also said detectives are working with a Baton Rouge anthropologist to find out as much as they can from the skull, such as race, gender and approximate age.

Anyone with information about this case should call the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office at (225) 621-INFO (4636).

News 2's Brittany Weiss will have more on this story tonight at 5 and 6.
