Did the boy find the skull that clean or did he wash it before coming to school, what did it look like when he found it, and if he did wash it why and where, weird.

"Residue visually consistent with soil is observed in crevices in the skull"
If there was soil in the crevices of the skull, I would think that the skull would have been clean to some extent when found.(prehaps just brushed it off a bit)

Otherwise if cleaned to that extent..(washed or rinsed off), the child most likley would have gotten all the soil as well.

She has been hit back or over the head. With a tool like a hammer? With a rock?

The main question: Who is she?

At this point I would hope police would look into any missing children's reports for female infants between 18 and 30 months old. This child had to come from somewhere. Surely someone notices an 18 month old. I think the story of the mother...

At this point I would hope police would look into any missing children's reports for female infants between 18 and 30 months old. This child had to come from somewhere. Surely someone notices an 18 month old. I think the story of the mother hiding a pregnancy is out the window, the child would have lived too long to hide, one would think. I think the police should search the boys room, they should have already in my opinion, for any possible weapons.
