First skull, then rest of skeleton found in southwest Atlanta

A human skeleton was found Monday in brush near the intersection of Langford Parkway and southbound I-285, authorities said.

Two construction workers in search of privacy for a bathroom break initially stumbled upon a human skull around 9 a.m.

Homicide detectives began investigating and delivered a full skeleton to the Fulton County Medical Examiner office later in the day. The ME will now try to identify the remains and determine the cause of death.
