Police reported yesterday that two sets of human skeletal remains have been found in Marsh Harbour, Abaco, over the past few days.
The remains were found on Friday, January 31, and also yesterday by employees of Abaco Waste Company in an area across from the fire station.
Officers from the Central Detective Unit (CDU) were yesterday on Abaco carrying out further investigations into the findings, and in the meantime the remains were to be brought to New Providence for examinations to determine the exact cause of death.
It is unclear whether the remains found are related to Hurricane Dorian, which devastated Abaco and Grand Bahama in early September.
Yesterday, Perspective – a column that is published in The Nassau Guardian every Monday – revealed that two sets of human remains were also found on Grand Bahama recently, on January 26 and January 30.
While the officer in charge of the island’s CDU Brian Rolle told Perspective that he did not believe the first set of remains found on Grand Bahama could be storm victims due to a lack of soft tissue, he indicated that the second set might be of storm victims who are missing.
