Tishomingo Coroner Mack Wilemon said the skull was the partial remains of Susie Rena Lanier, 43, who was reported missing by her husband on June 6.
The partial remains had been sent to the forensics lab in Jackson for analysis to identify the individual last week after a Tishomingo County resident reported that his dogs had brought a human skull up into his front yard on Country Road 247.
Investigators with the TCSD immediately conducted a search until it had to be called off due to severe weather conditions.
The search continued Friday, but Tishomingo County Sheriff John Daugherty had said it was a heavily wooded area and rough terrain.
Thus far, no other remains have been found, according to Wilemon.
“There’s just nothing to go on to know where it came from ... It was less than a mile from where she lived to where that skull appeared. All we can do is hope something else turns up,” said Wilemon.
The initial report by law enforcement, at the time of her disappearance, stated that Lanier was last seen by neighbors walking in the area around County Road 255.
