Cayman Islands police are examining a pair of handcuffs found attached to a metal rod encased in a cement block in the waters off Seven Mile Beach.
Scuba divers found the handcuffs and cement block just off the coast of a hotel resort property last weekend, but the items were not brought ashore until Tuesday.
“One ring of the handcuffs is cuffed to a metal bar at the top of the block, while the other ring is cuffed to a jagged, flat piece of metal,” a police press release describing the find stated. “The purpose of the block and handcuffs is undetermined at this time.”
The cuffs and the cement block had obviously been underwater for quite some time, based on photographs taken by the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service.
Anyone who might have further information about the handcuffs is asked to call George Town Police Station at 949-4222.
