Human remains found in mangrove on Ambergris Caye

While that family picks up the pieces of their loss, officers in San Pedro had to dive and pick up pieces of a lost life. The skeletal remains of a human were found on Ambergris Caye. At three-thirty on Wednesday evening, a fisherman informed San Pedro police about the discovery. Southwest of the island about three feet from a swampy mangrove, the bones were found in two feet of water.   Weather beaten and deteriorated, the remains included a skull, one rib cage bone, a pelvic bone, a femur, and one piece of jaw bone with a few teeth attached.   Several other small bones were also found. The remains were sent to the forensic department and investigations are in their preliminary stages.  The area is known for relics of Mayan temples.  The police department has several unsolved missing person cases and the bones may provide closure for one of the families of the missing persons.

    Let’s hope our law enforcement and medical examiner experts are capable of identifying the body by dental charts or DNA, and that they can determine whether it was murder or not.
