Children playing just south of Cochrane came across what locals described as a human head last October.
Police say the remains appears to belong to a Caucasian male between the ages of 20 and 60.
The individual had also suffered a broken nose that had healed.
Investigators say the remains decomposed for less than a year prior to their discovery.
The RCMP is hoping someone will know who the man was and will help with the investigation.
