  • Case History

    On March 12, 2002 at around 5 pm., a woman was walking her dog and came across the skeletonized remains of a man. The remains were supposedly washed ashore from the sea, maybe during a storm. Following sings of grinding down on the bones, it was concluded that the body had been in water for a long time, maybe until he was complety skeletonized. So far there are no signs pointing to foul play. Some sort of accident is also possible.

    According to experts, there is a probability of 60 percent that he was someone of Northern European origin.
