A Polish resident has discovered what may be a previously unknown mass grave near the grounds of the infamous Nazi Auschwitz extermination camp.
Police and prosecutors across the country are now investigating the find after the unidentified resident spotted some 12 human skulls and a number of other human bones along a bank of the Sola River, ABC News reported.
The grisly discovery was made near the town of Oswiecim in southern Poland when the river’s water levels were low, according to the report.
Police are investigating whether the remains are linked to the death camp, but a spokesperson for the Auschwitz museum told ABC on Friday that they were discovered outside its perimeter.

Over a million people were killed in the camp during World War II, which was built by the Germans during the Holocaust.
Most of those murdered at Auschwitz during the Holocaust were European Jews, but Russian soldiers, gypsies, German dissidents and others were also killed there by Adolf Hitler’s troops.
