We know a little bit more about a human skull found on the south side of Odessa on Thursday.

The skull found in the 400 block of Bunche was sent to the University of North Texas to find out how old the skull is.

The University's report investigators got back says the skull is between 500 and one thousand years old.

A handy man found the skull Thursday when cleaning out a storage shed along with some teaching supplies.

Investigators say they think it could be a cadaver skull that belonged to a former science teacher, who used it for classes.
