Woman’s body found buried in Manzanilla
The body of an unidentified East Indian woman was discovered buried under the sand at Manzanilla beach yesterday. Around 7.30 am, three fishermen were on the beach when a dog attacked one of them. While chasing the dog, they came upon a group of stray dogs who were gnawing on a human hand that was protruding from under the sand. The index finger of the right hand appeared to be eaten away by the dogs.
The fishermen then telephoned the Manzanilla Police Station. Police cordoned off the area and started using a shovel to excavate the body. After midday, the decomposing body of the woman was pulled out of the sand. The body was examined by the district medical officer and then removed by undertakers.
The deceased was clothed in a pair of blue jeans and white blouse, and had a chain bearing a locket around her neck. However, police said they did not find anything nearby that could help them identify the individual. Police estimate the woman may have died three days ago. The police are seeking assistance in identifying the body.
