Salt Lake County deputy sheriffs will look for more human remains in Angie Davenport's back yard after her son found a skull there.
Six-year-old Jared Davenport thought he found an egg Saturday when he uncovered the skull in a dirt mound behind his house."I knew it was a skull when I saw the eye holes," the boy said.
He was delighted with his find, just in time for Halloween. But his mother was not so thrilled.
Angie Davenport said it appears the skull was old, perhaps from an American Indian child or one of the first pioneers. The jawbone was missing.
Salt Lake County sheriff's deputies took the skull and planned to return Monday to sift through the Davenports' back yard.
