BREWSTER COUNTY - Border Patrol Agents in Brewster County stumbled onto a human skeleton.

They came across the bones on Tuesday in the Bullis Gap Ranch Area.

That's about 30 miles south of Highway 90.

An investigator says the remains could be more than a year old.

Right now, they don't know if it's a man or woman.

Deputies suspect it could be a Mexican national, since the area is often used by smugglers.

The skeleton was sent in for forensic testing.
