Thursday was supposed to be a routine search of the area, but after shocking discoveries, yellow crime markers were scattered all throughout the woods in northeast Panola County.
Panola County sheriff's investigators, the county coroner, and an anthropology team from Mississippi State University combed the area for most of Thursday.
Bones, clothing, and jewelry are all clues to a possible murder.
Panola County Sheriff Dennis Darby said early estimates from medical experts suggest the skull could have been there for two to 12 years before it was discovered.
"We have DNA. We have a possible female," said Darby. "They would have to know about it, this place is ... If you were going to hide, this is the place to hide. There's no reason for anyone else to be down here."
Crews came back out to search after a neighbor found a human skull in the same area two months ago. He was looking for a lost horse.
"There was blunt trauma to one of the eye areas," said Darby.
Anthropology students from Mississippi State thought they would just be doing a grid-search until discovering two long bones, believed to be human femurs.
"They will do testing of these bones with the ones we've already turned in, the skull, and see if they match," said Darby.
The mystery now: Whose body is it? Investigators are checking for people who have been reported missing around the area.
Search teams also found an object that could have been used as a weapon in the crime. They will send everything to the state crime lab for tests.
