Could Coastal Road Bones be Missing Person?

Joseph Myvett

But police are also investigating the remains of a body which was discovered on the Coastal Road on Sunday, which may be upgraded to that of a murder.  Today, Police said that they have not determined the sex or identity of the skeletal remains because it is charred beyond recognition. Information late this evening to News Five is that the remains were found by the family of a missing person who believes that it may be that of a female because of the length of the hair and a female underwear discovered with the remains.  At this time, however, police are treating it as a sudden death and are looking at missing persons list in that area to help them identify the deceased.

“Yesterday following up on information, police visited mile ten on the coastal road where they came upon some burnt human remains. The remains were processed and then transported to the Southern Regional Hospital for further transportation to Belize City to be examined by the pathologist. It will be brought to Belize City this morning for examination. From the observation of the officers who went out there, it seems that it is not too much of an old death. It is not too recent; however, not even the sex could have been determined at that point so then that’s one of the reasons why it will be brought in today for that examination.”
