CALDWELL COUNTY, N.C. —
Police have asked the SBI to make DNA testing on a skull found in Caldwell County a priority to see if it is connected to the murder of 10-year-old Zahra Baker.
A hunter discovered the skull in a wooded area near Winkler Way earlier this week. In a 911 call, the hunter said the skull was small in size.
Nearly 50 people conducted an extensive search in the area on Thursday but didn't find anything else.
Police said the earliest the test could come back is Monday, but it could take up to two months before they have the results.
Zahra Baker’s stepmother, Elisa Baker, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder last year. Some of the 10-year-old’s remains were found scattered in different areas of Caldwell County.
