Two men walking in the woods west of the Ashley off Savannah Highway reported finding a skull on Friday afternoon.
The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office responded after one of the men contacted them.
Charleston County Coroner Rae Wooten said the remains are being investigated by her office.
The men live on Bolton Road. They had walked across Savannah Highway into the woods looking for a place to launch a canoe when they found a skull.
Wooten said the investigation will resume in the morning.
