Human skull discovered in Esquimalt shed: VicPD

An Esquimalt resident in the 800-block of Lampson Street came across a human skull while cleaning out a storage shed on the property last night, according to the Victoria Police Department.

"It looks as though the skull has probably been there for many, many years as it's bare bone," said Bowen Osoko, VicPD spokesman.

Victoria police are conducting a search of the area for other human remains, but are not yet investigating the scene as a crime, Osoko said. VicPD is also liaising with the B.C. coroner's service to examine and potentially identify the skull.
