Details are limited as it's an active investigation, but according to the Houston Police Department, what appears to be part of a human skull, was found in front of a home in the 9900 block of Valley Lake Dr. near Tidwell Rd. 

Police say a landscaper was mowing a neighbor’s yard and discovered the remains around 1:15 p.m.

Officials believe the skull "has been exposed to the elements for a while," but were unable to determine how long the remains have been there. It's unclear who the remains belong to or how they got there, but an investigation remains underway. 

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600.
