HAMILTON, Indiana — A coroner says an archaeologist has determined a human skull found in a northeastern Indiana lake came from a prehistoric Native American.

Steuben County Coroner Bill Harter says an analysis by University of Indianapolis forensic anthropologist Krista Latham made the determination Monday.

Indiana conservation officers say a Hamilton Lake resident was getting ready to use a personal watercraft Saturday evening when he stepped on what he believed to be a stone. The man tossed the item to the shore, where his wife realized it was a skull.

Divers on Sunday found other skeletal remains, but Harter says only the skull was determined to be human.

The (Angola) Herald Republican reports (http://bit.ly/1pFrd8W ) the partial skull has been taken to the Indiana State Museum for further analysis.
