Bahamas police find 4 burnt bodies on remote cay

Police in the Bahamas say the badly burnt bodies of four people have been found on a remote southern cay of the sprawling archipelago.

The Royal Bahamas Defense Force said Sunday that the charred corpses of three men and one woman have been found on Anguilla Cay. The barren, uninhabited cay is relatively close to Cuba.

Lt. Commander Raymond King says tires appeared to have been set alight on top of the bodies.

He says investigators suspect the people may have been Haitian migrants. However, there was no sign of a vessel or any evidence to determine how the four victims arrived on the cay.

The corpses have been brought to New Providence, the main island of the country of over 700 islands, islets and cays off Florida’s eastern coast.
