A skull found by a hiker in Griffth Park last night has prompted an investigation by police and coroners, according to various news sources. A hiker found it on a steep trail around 5:25 p.m. Not knowing it was animal or human, the hiker alerted authorities, who later determined it was the latter. It could be up to two years old, KABC-TV reported. The coroner's office will remain the lead investigator in the case to determine if the cause of death was natural, accidental or homicide.
