Mystery of human remains on El Coto Beach


HUMAN remains found at the beginning of August on El Coto Beach in Colonia de Sant Jordi, belong to two different people.

A skull was found some 20 metres from the breakwater near a boat in a popular area about five metres deep. After they were alerted, Guardia Civil divers combed the area for two hours, finding only a jaw bone with a few teeth. It is believed it may have been removed by another diver, but the one who found it had taken a photo which was handed over to the officers. This led them to find that the jaw bone would not have fitted with the skull which is believed to have belonged to a man. The jaw bone is thought to be a woman’s.

Their identities are unknown and it is thought a medicine or anthropology student had them at home and decided to dispose of them in the sea.
