In 2018, an autopsy was performed on the remains but showed no definitive cause of death.

A farmer found the remains when he was mowing, telling authorities he came across what looked like a human skull. He said it appeared to have hair and leather skin.

The Wabash County Coroner says the Illinois State Police are continuing to investigate. If you have any information, you are asked to contact the Illinois State Police.
