PLANO -- It could be the break in one of two cold cases, or it could be nothing at all.

Plano Police are investigating a skull, found by a cyclist near Carlisle Elementary School.

“We continued to search and canvas the area and we did find another bone,” says David Tilley, public information officer for Plano Police.

When bones turn up, the obvious question is: Whose could they be? 

You probably know all about Christina Morris. She was last seen at a Plano parking garage in August 2014. Her case has been in the news non-stop and her face on poster throughout the city.

But, there is also another missing person in Plano: Christopher Tennyson was last seen at his house in April 2015. 

Right now, Plano Police say its too early to tell if the skull is even human.

“We’ve actually had the Medical Examiners Office of Collin County come down, collect the bones.  And they'll evaluate whether or not they are human,” says Tilley.

Both families were notified that the bones were found. The park is located about five miles from The Shops at Legacy where Christina Morris was last seen. It’s a mile and a half from Tennyson’s home on Green Oaks Dr.

In case it turns out the skull is human, Plano PD is taking every precaution.

“You wanna make sure you get the potential crime scene taken care of processed responsibly,” says Tilley.

So the investigation goes on, and for two heartbroken families, the waiting game continues.​
