LEONIDAS TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A skull found in the St. Joseph River over the weekend is fake, according to Michigan State Police.

A fisherman called police after finding the skull near the Jacksonburg Road Bridge, MSP said.

Investigators said the location of the skull was close to where Venus Stewart disappeared in 2010, but an anthropologist has determined the skull is fake.
