A man going out hunting made a gruesome discovery Friday morning, according to the Slidell Police Department.
Officials said the man was in the area adjacent to the Palm Lake area around 11 a.m. when he found what he believed to be a human skull.
The man called police, who turned the skull over to the St. Tammany Parish Coroner's Office.
Authorities said there were no immediate signs of foul play and no other skeletal remains found in the area.
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries also came to the scene, and officials said the investigation is ongoing.
