In a story in Wednesday’s Post Independent, the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office incorrectly stated that a human skull found in the Colorado River on Monday was transferred to the Mesa County Coroner Dr. Robert Kurtzman. In fact, the skull actually is being held by the Garfield County Coroner’s Office awaiting further inspection and identification.
