An eerie discovery made on the shores of Anigua has prompted an investigation by authorities. PNC spoke with the man who made the discovery and it was more than what he was looking for.
Discovering remnants of the war such as bullets, harpoons, and unexploded ordnances is not an unusual occurrence on island, but what Tony Koywa stumbled upon yesterday near Adelup is quite unusual.
“I was just beachcombing 40 minutes prior to our shop opening, so I had lots of time. From a distance, it looked like one of those fishing buoys, the yellow ones, and as soon as I got closer, I see the ridges on the skull and everything. The tide was coming up so I took a stick and brought it closer to shore so it doesn’t wash away and so GPD and the authorities could come and find the next of kin at least,” Koywa said.
Koywa shares that he doesn’t believe that the skull washed in from the ocean. Instead, he believes that the river carried it out to the waters’ bank. He described the skull as being small in size, having a yellowish aged appearance, and missing the lower jaw line and teeth. He added that no other skeleton remains were found.
The discovery of the skeletal remains has prompted an investigation by the Guam Police Department.
