Riverside County Sheriff's Department Homicide unit is seeking information about the identity of a man whose skull was found just off Highway 243 about two miles east of Lake Fulmor on May 18, 2010.
Homicide detectives released a composite sketch of the man based on the bone structure of the skull. He is believed to be Caucasian between 20 and 40 years old at the time of death. Detectives, who are treating the case as a homicide, estimate the skull had been at the Lake Fulmor area site for some time. No additional skeletal remains were found, just the skull. Because of the skull's condition, it can't be tested for DNA.
At the time of discovery in May, detectives searched outstanding missing persons reports but found no match or leads.
Homicide is hoping that by publishing the composite sketch and calling attentiion to the case and location where the skull was found, people might come forward with information that could lead to identifying the individual.
Authorities are asking anyone with information to call Investigator Rick Simms at (760) 393-3524 or the Sheriff's homicide tipline website at www.riversidesheriff.org/tipline.
