Guam - There may be delays to a reburial of human remains along Ritidian Point slated for this weekend.

In a letter addressed to the island's state archeologist John Mark Joseph and SHPO's Lynda Aguon, biological anthropologist Gary Heathcote recommends they reject the present report of the human remains conducted by archaeologist Dr. Mike Carson. Heathcote calls the report "inadequate beyond belief" lacking basic information in its mere one and a half page description as well as an insult to officials at the Guam National Wildlife Refuge.

Joseph tells KUAM he agrees with Healthcote saying it was an inadequate report.

A reburial ceremony of the remains is schedule for July 20 at 1 p.m. at Ritidian. According to Carson, the two sets of partial human remains are from the 1500 to 1700 period.
