Mystery primate skull found in Dallas

A plumber working on a construction project outside a North Dallas school unearthed a mysterious skull. Wait, before you get excited, it’s just a monkey skull and not evidence of Bigfoot – (sorry Jon!).

“We all know it’s a primate,” said David Evans, 25, of Alvarado. “We just don’t know which kind.”

The skull was buried about five feet underground, he said. It’s six inches from front to back and two inches wide. Most of the teeth, including one-inch canines, are intact.

Evans said the skull was discovered last week at the St. Alcuin Montessori School near Churchill Way and Preston Road.

A noted anthropologist for the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s office, Dr. Dana Austin, viewed photographs of the skull and said it was definitely an “old-world primate,” possibly a monkey or chimp.
