The mystery of an unknown human skull discovered by “paranormal investigators” near an abandoned hotel
POLICE have yet to uncover the mystery of an unknown human skull discovered by “paranormal investigators” near an abandoned hotel.
An investigation into the grizzly bear’s discovery was launched after the remains were found at the Egerton House hotel in Bolton.
Danny and Felicity Duffy, who run a paranormal investigation YouTube channel, found the bones in March and alerted the cops.
At Bolton Coroners’ Court, area coroner Dr Alan Walsh learned that officers had yet to find any identifiable information on the skull, including the gender of the person to whom it belonged.
Explaining how the skull was found, Police Coroner Benjamin Dobbs told the inquest: “On March 1, 2021, human remains were found at the site of an abandoned hotel on Egerton Road, Bolton, by operatives public.
“The police intervened and a human skull was identified.
“The investigation into the origin of these remains is still ongoing.”
He told the inquest that police investigations had yet to reveal any features that could identify the skull.
The coroner ordered further examinations and adjourned the inquest, asking police to provide an update on “if any further remains will be found.”
The detectives had already sent the skull for DNA analysis.
They later reported that it was probably a male’s, and that he was also likely under 50 as well.
Forensic investigators were seen scouring the area around the hotel after the skull was found just after midnight on March 1.
Military-style jacket found near bones, YouTubers Danny and Felicity Duffy said Manchester Evening News at the time.
Danny said: “We were doing our normal routine and about 10 or 15 minutes later we spotted something.
“I moved the bushes to the side and it was a human skull in the tree line. It really shocked us.
“My legs turned to jelly. We immediately called the police.”
The couple were questioned by cops for about two hours before being released, Danny added.
Officers have since briefed the public, stressing that they do not believe the find is linked to any other incidents.
“Forensics have not yet determined the person’s age or how they died,” a spokesperson for the Greater Manchester Police Department said last month.
“This is still not related to any further investigation and investigations are underway to find out if this is related to a missing person, but there is nothing to suggest this anyway at the moment.
“Nothing was found near the scene that provided further investigative evidence.
“No one has been charged for this incident. “
Dr Walsh adjourned the undated investigation for a new hearing, but said there would be a reconsideration of the case on September 10 of this year.
