Human Remains on Highway 225: Skull found along Southeast Houston Freeway belongs to woman, record show
HOUSTON, TX (KTRK) — Officials have identified a human skull found by a landscaping team in southeast Houston, records show.
The video above is from a previous report.
At around 1:00 p.m. on August 2, crews using TxDOT discovered the remains while clearing some of the growth along the road at Block 1300 of Highway 225 near Scarborough.
A worker was preparing to fell a tree when he found what appeared to be a human skull and arm, according to a homicide detective.
Records show that the remains belonged to Barbara Jones-Orsini, who was born in 1950.
Authorities believe her remains may have been at the site for several months, and it’s unclear how old she was when she died.
The cause of death has yet to be verified by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.
The investigations are ongoing.
Authorities are urging anyone with information in this case to contact the Houston Police Department’s Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or to speak anonymously with Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
