Authorities are investigating the discovery of a human skull and a cauldron found in a trash bin the northeastern Nevada community of Wells.
Elko County Undersheriff Doug Gailey said Washoe County crime lab investigators were brought in Friday to look for clues about the origin of the skull found in the 30-yard trash bin near the Wells airport.
Gailey compared the cauldron to a witches brewing pot.
The skull was described as yellowed with age and missing its teeth. But the jawbone was intact.
Investigators were trying to determine whether it was from a murder victim or exhumed from a grave.
