The skull was found by construction workers inside the former Temperance Street School last July 30.

New Glasgow police said Friday it has been determined it does not belong to any missing persons in that part of Nova Scotia, and investigators will now look for connections to cases across Canada.

The century-old school was being converted into apartments. At the time, the owner of the construction company told CTV News that the skull appeared quite old, and was missing its bottom half.
