ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO (KPLR) – A mushroom hunter came upon a human skull Monday afternoon in north St. Louis County, leading to a discovery of additional human remains in the area.

According to Sgt. Shawn McGuire, a spokesman for the St. Louis County Police Department, officers were called to a wooded area between a retirement community and Christian Hospital in the 11100 block of Village North Drive around 5 p.m. on April 10.
