The ship, which ran around on Italy's Giglio Island in 2012, killing 32 people, was towed last month to the port of Genoa for scrapping. Prior to the dismantling, a final search is underway for the body of Russel Rebello, a ship's steward from India.
The skull found may not be that of Rebello. It was found in the same area of the ship where a badly decomposed body was discovered, the Italian news agency ANSA reported Wednesday.
