(KSL News) Forensic experts have released the test results of a skull found in the attic of a Tooele home.

The skull was found in the house's attic during renovation work last month. Experts determined it was that of a Native American woman.

Using radiocarbon dating, a Florida lab found the woman lived sometime between 1620 and 1800. But the mystery as to how the skull ended up in the attic remains unsolved.
