Human skull found in crab pot near Westport, Wash.; sheriff's office investigating
February 22, 2014

WESTPORT, Washington — A King County anthropologist has confirmed that a partial skull found in a crab pot near Westport, Washington, is human.

A fisherman pulled it up Friday morning about 2 miles off the coast. The fisherman set the pot last week.
 


Noting  from the articles posted and the photos, since the skull found is a partial,  (there doesn't appear to be teeth or a jaw) I would think it much more difficult to ID, and take a lot more time using dna.

Skull brought up in crab pot sent to FBI

A skull found in a crab pot off the coast of Westport on Friday has been sent to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for DNA analysis, Grays Harbor County Undersheriff Dave Pimentel said Monday.

A local crab fisherman found the skull in one of the crab pots he pulled up early Friday morning. The pots had been out about a week, 2.3 miles off the coast, the fisherman told police.

The King County Medical Examiner determined the skull was “unequivocally human,” Pimentel said, and the skull was forwarded on to the FBI for further analysis.

The medical examiner believed the skull belonged to a younger person, but was unable to determine age or gender, Pimentel said. The person is believed to have been deceased for some time. The amount of time it spent in the water is still unclear.

Rumors have flown about the skull since its discovery, some suggesting it might be that of missing McCleary teen Lindsey Baum. Baum went missing in 2009 at age 10.
 
Typically, it can take up to a year for DNA analysis.

“They’re going to put a top priority on it and we hope to have it back within a month,” Pimentel said.

Skull found in WA crab pot going to FBI lab

An anthropologist in King County confirmed the skull is human. Pimentel says nothing else is known about the skull, including how it got into the crab pot.

Phil Westrick, captain of the crab boat "The Ultimate," was fishing near Westport early Friday morning when he came across something peculiar. When he pulled his crab pot out of the water about two miles off the coast, he discovered a human skull inside. Westrick and his crew immediately called authorities, who said they believe it belonged to a young person.

It is unclear whether the skull shows evidence of blunt-force trauma.

Informant Told Lewis County Detectives Lindsey Baum's Body Was Put in Crab Pot
Possible Link?: Man Who Testified in Riffe Murder Trial Also Provided Information on Missing McLeary Girl
Posted: Friday, February 28, 2014 10:14 pm |  Updated: 10:27 pm, Fri Feb 28, 2014.   

Nearly a year before a child-sized skull was recovered in a crab pot two miles off the coast of Westport, Lewis County deputies sent information to the Gray’s Harbor Sheriff’s Office about a tip they received from an informant indicating that missing McCleary girl Lindsey Baum’s body had been put inside a crab pot and dumped into the ocean.
 
A skull was recovered on Feb. 21 after a local fisherman pulled up his crab pot about 2.3 miles off the coast of Westport, according to Gray’s Harbor Undersheriff Dave Pimentel.

Looks like this is the body of a man and not a child.

Seems to me, I recall from a long time ago such information.  But then again, I have slept a couple of times since then.

No DNA match for skull found in WA crab pot
Posted on April 3, 2014 at 3:28 PM
Updated today at 8:02 AM

WESTPORT, Wash. (AP) -- Authorities say a human skull found in a crab pot off the Washington coast belongs to a female, but it doesn't match anyone in a national DNA database.

The Grays Harbor County Sheriff's Office says the skull found off Westport was sent to the FBI crime lab in Quantico, Va., and run through the Combined DNA Index System. No matches were found.

KXRO-AM reports the DNA profile did indicate the skull is from a female, and her age is unknown.

Thank you for the updated, grace-land.  Perhaps in the future the identity of the person can be known.

I hope sweet Lindsey can be found.
