TUCSON, Ariz. -- Authorities say a human skull has been found on Tucson's far west side.

Pima County Sheriff's officials say a hunter reported finding the skull in the desert Sunday afternoon and called 911.

Investigators responded to the scene and the adult skull was turned over to the county Medical Examiner's Office.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that the skull has a full set of teeth and doesn't have any obvious signs of trauma.
