    Cops searching for answers after finding fugitive?s (Jason Gold, 34) skull in mining pit

    Researchers have linked a human skull discovered in an ?active mining pit? in Pennsylvania to a fugitive in the state, reports said.

    The skull of 34-year-old Jason Gold was discovered in the mine in Schuylkill County in late August, Penn Live reported.

    Investigators sent the remains to a University of North Texas for DNA testing, which returned a match to Gold, who lived in nearby Lost Creek.

    Authorities told the newspaper Gold had several open arrest warrants and was not reported missing to any state agencies.

    Family members of Gold were also clueless about how he died or why his skull turned up in the mine, investigators said.

    ?Several family members were interviewed and were unable to provide further information on why Gold would have been where his body was discovered or why only his skull was discovered,? police told Penn Live.

    HUMAN SKULL MYSTERY: Pennsylvania State Police need help after remains found in mining pit

    LOST CREEK, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- Pennsylvania state police are asking for help after a human skull was found in a mining pit.

    When talking about this case, Pennsylvania State Police investigator Daniel Womer simply says, "There's a lot of unanswered questions."

    Womer is talking about the mystery surrounding a man named Jason Gold who was originally from Easton.

    It was more than three years ago when a human skull was found somewhere in a mining pit in Schuylkill County.

    Trooper Womer says, "We had it sent to Mercyhurst University out near Erie, Pennsylvania and confirmed, yes, it is human remains. It is a male."

    Further DNA testing determined the skull belonged to Gold, who was approximately 34 years old at the time of his death, living in the rural town of Lost Creek in Schuylkill County.

    Investigators would not elaborate, but they said Gold had a few run-ins with the law over the years and that, partially, explains why no one ever reported him missing.

    "His family members believed he was in prison. I think some of that may have had to do with his father. His father told them he was in prison and his father passed away two years ago," says Womer.

    Authorities scoured the mine pits where the skull was found, but neither his body nor any other clues have ever been found.

    Now, state police are reaching out to the public with the hope of determining what happened to Jason Gold.

    As far as they know, state police say the last time anyone heard from Gold was six years ago in the year 2014.

    Gold was 6'1" tall with brown hair and blue eyes. He also had several tattoos on his arms.

    Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact state police in Reading.
