Guam - Medical Examiner Dr. Aurelio Espinola has confirmed that bones found at a ranch off Chalan Mataguac in Yigo late Tuesday are in fact, that of a human. Espinola tells KUAM he visited the ranch last night and saw bones scattered around the area.
Based on his preliminary review, the medical examiner believes the individual died a couple months ago and may possibly be the remains of a 70 year old man who had been living alone at the ranch. He says it's too early to determine how the man died but he didn't see any evidence of foul play.
Espinola will now conduct an examination of the bones and try to verify the identity. The Guam Police Department is conducting a death investigation following the discovery on Tuesday.
