JASPER, Ala. (AP) -- Initial tests show a possible link between a skull found under a house in Jasper and the case of two elderly women who've been missing for years.
ABC 33/40 reports that a forensic pathologist has determined the skull is consistent with a small, elderly white female.
Police have said the skull could be connected to the missing person case of 104-year-old Mary Cobb and her daughter, 83-year-old Wynona Delvecchio. They were reported missing in 2005.
Delvecchio once owned the house where the skull was recently found by the person who lives there now. Police say they believe the women were living in the home around the time they were last seen.
A one-time neighbor of the women was convicted of collecting retirement checks that should have gone to Cobb.
