Someone clearing out an irrigation ditch found a human skull at North Staten Island Road near West Walnut Grove Road between Thornton and Walnut Grove, according to the San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office.

The worker was clearing the irrigation ditch of mud and debris with a bulldozer at about 10:53 a.m. Monday when he spotted the skull, according to a sheriff's report.

Sheriff's deputies took the skull to the California Department of Justice for testing.
