HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- An investigation is underway after a landscaping crew found a human skull in southeast Houston, according to police.

The discovery was made Tuesday at about 1 p.m. Crews with TxDOT were clearing some of the growth along the road in the 1300 block of Highway 225 near Scarborough.
