SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

After a skull was found in April along some railroad tracks in Spartanburg, police were back out at the scene on Wednesday continue to investigate the discovery.

On April 25, police recovered the human skull after teens found it lying near the railroad tracks along Sloan Street.  Investigators and search dogs were back out at the scene on Wednesday.

At the time, Spartanburg County Coroner Rusty Clevenger said the skull may have been stolen from an Oakwood Cemetery grave in 2012. He said the skull was found not far from Oakwood Cemetery.

In April, Clevenger said he was working with a Forensic Anthropologist to examine the skull and identify it. He said the date of death on the grave was from the 1960s, so evidence for a comparison may be hard to develop.

On Wednesday, Clevenger said they arranged the search effort to help look for other possible evidence that may be in the area. He said they have yet to make an identity for the skull.
