Experts To Investigate ‘Skeletal Remains’ In Car

12th January 2018

A Home Office Pathologist will come to the island next week to look at suspected skeletal remains found in a burnt-out car.

Guernsey Police are also now working with a fire expert from the UK to find out who the car belongs to.

The vehicle was found at Petit Bot on Monday, where it had been badly damaged after being set alight.

Police say if the remains are found to be human, a post-mortem will be carried out.

Guernsey Police are also continuing to look for a Latvian man, who they say could possibly be linked to the incident.

33-year-old, Mikus Alps, was last seen in the early hours of Monday morning.

He is described as being around 5’9” tall with fair skin, blue eyes, short brown hair and a short beard. He also has distinctive tattoos on his arms and back.

Family Liason Officers remain in close contact with his family.

Despite admitting that the two incidents could be connected, Guernsey Police insist they are still keeping an open mind about the potential direction of this investigation.

If anyone has any information, they are asked to contact CID on 725111, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
