Amarillo police release more information on skeletal remains found at city lake

On Tuesday, the Amarillo Police Department Homicide unit responded to call of possible skeletal remains at Amarillo Lake. Officers recovered an adult human skull at that location, which appears to have been there less than a year.

Officers searched the surrounding area for evidence, but did not locate additional remains or signs of criminal activity. The evidence collected will be sent for forensic testing.

The unit would like to thank the Potter County Sheriff’s Office for assisting with the use of their drone and the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for deploying their cadaver dogs to assist in the search.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact the Homicide Unit at 378-9468.
