More human remains were found Saturday morning in the same area of Santa Clarita where authorities found a human skull days earlier.

Homicide detectives and investigators with the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner returned to the site in the Santa Clarita riverbed near South Fork Creek and Magic Mountain Parkway after a skull was found there Wednesday, according to L.A. County Sheriff's Department.

About 100 yards from where the skull was found, investigators discovered additional human remains with the help of a cadaver dog, sheriff's officials said.

"It appears the two discoveries are related," sheriff's officials stated in a news release, adding that the remains still need to be examined by the coroner's office to further investigate that theory.

The skull was initially found by a utility employee, officials said.

Meanwhile, investigators continue to comb the area in search of more evidence and possibly more human remains.
