Officers from Harris County were called to the scene of a wooded area in the 12900 block of North Eldridge Parkway, 25 miles northwest of Houston.

"The remains of a human skull were observed by an individual walking in Cypress Park," Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez tweeted on Sunday.

A park patron made the grim discovery around noon in a wooded area away from park amenities, Sheriff Gonzalez told the Houston Chronicle.

What Texas Western's Black players and white coach did in 1966 continues to ripple

  What Texas Western's Black players and white coach did in 1966 continues to ripple What Texas Western accomplished that NCAA championship game in 1966 slowly and quietly made an impact that echoed more loudly as time passed on.In a tiny motel room in College Park, Maryland, the Black players had been summoned. They had just finished their pregame meal and Texas Western coach Don Haskins had cornered his big center David Lattin with a demand.

It is unclear exactly where in the park the discovery was made or how long the remains had been there.

An investigation is underway and the park will reportedly remain open.

Newsweek has contacted the Harris County Sheriff's Office for comment.

Earlier this month, human remains were discovered by unsuspecting hikers along a trail in Santee in San Diego County, California.

The San Diego County Sheriff's Department launched an investigation after the remains were found on February 3.

The department said in a statement: "On February 3, 2021, just after 4:00 p.m., Sheriff's deputies responded to the 11000 block of Summit Avenue in the city of Santee for found human remains. The remains were found by hikers on a trail nearby.

"The Sheriff's Homicide Unit responded and has assumed responsibility of the investigation. The Homicide Unit will coordinate with the Medical Examiner's Office who will ultimately be responsible for identifying the remains and determining cause and manner of death."

Days later, the body of an unidentified adult man was found floating in a pond at a Colorado golf course on the afternoon of February 7.

In December, human remains were found in two suitcases left on the side of a road in Denver.

The discovery was made by Denver Parks and Recreation workers who were in the middle of plowing snow from the sidewalk along the Sanderson Gulch Trail in the southwest of the city when they came across across the abandoned suitcases.

The workers saw what they believed to be body parts inside and alerted authorities. Members of the Denver Police Department's homicide unit, the medical examiner's office and the crime lab unit arrived at the scene at the 1700 block of South Java Way in the Mar Lee neighborhood.

The remains were later confirmed to be that of a "recently deceased adult white male," Clark said, citing the Office of the Medical Examiner. The case is being treated as a homicide.

Texas, the go-it-alone state, is rattled by the failure to keep the lights on

  Texas, the go-it-alone state, is rattled by the failure to keep the lights on Political leaders in Texas prize what they see as the state’s self-reliance, its go-it-alone ethos, and its cheap power – all of which they regard as related. As the country and the world stand on the verge of a revolution in distribution of electricity, driven by artificial intelligence and the coming surge of electric vehicles, Texas is proud of having its own energy grid, with only minor connections to the rest of the country. And they argue that the state’s aggressive deregulation of the grid — which some link to this week’s failures — has brought inexpensive electricity to the state’s residents and businesses.

In the same week, the remains of a young girl were unearthed in woodland in Oregon.

The child is believed to have been between 6.5 and 10 years old when she died. Her body was found near a rest stop in a heavily wooded area in Lincoln County.
