24 June 2021: Off the Coast of Grand Turk/Turks & Caicos

The remains of 20 people were found in a boat in the waters of the British territory, the Turks and Caicos Islands. Fishermen saw the boat adrift and approached it. It is unknown what they were doing and who they are. How they died is also a mystery at this time, but authorities said there didn’t appear to be foul play. Police Commissioner Trevor Bottins released a statement saying they think the boat was from outside the Caribbean region and that although it was found near Turks and Caicos, they do not believe it was their intended destination. The boat was found about six miles off the coast of Grand Turk. “A very distressing scene yesterday which my officers dealt with professionally and with great dignity and humanity,” said Commissioner Bottins.
