Shortly after 3 p.m., Akron Police say they received a call that a human skull was found on the sidewalk in the 1300 block of Marcy Street. Officers and paramedics located the remains and secured the area until the medical examiner's office could respond.
The skeletal remains will be examined by an anthropologist in an attempt to determine the gender, race and identity of the victim. The medical examiner's office says this process will be very tedious and take some time to complete.
