Objects in water prompt Marine Police searches

Cayman Islands Marine Police conducted two search operations last Wednesday off Seven Mile Beach after they received reports that something resembling human bones was seen in the water. 

The search operations were conducted in the same area where scuba divers earlier found handcuffs attached to a cement block, which was brought ashore early last week. 

Police said a member of the public reported that while snorkeling he had seen something on the sea floor hat looked resembled a human skull or bones, although he wasn’t sure, and the object could have been something like brain coral instead. In response to the report, a marine unit conducted two searches but did not find anything. 

Police have not determined what, if anything, had been attached to the handcuffs, or any information related to the cement block and the handcuffs. A police press release describing the find last week stated that one ring of the handcuffs was cuffed to a metal bar at the top of the concrete block, while the other ring was attached to a jagged, flat piece of metal. 

Police Public Relations Officer Jacqueline Carpenter said there have been no other developments in the matter.
