GERMAN SAILOR FEARED DEAD ON REMOTE ISLAND
A German sailor is feared to have been eaten by cannibals on a remote island in French Polynesia.
Stefan Ramin, 40 had been sailing the globe since 2008 with his girlfriend looking for paradise. However when he reached the remote tropical island of Nuku Hiva things went wrong.
His girlfriend Heike Dorsch, 37 last saw him leave with a local guide named as Henri Halti who was taking him on a traditional goat hunt with other locals. Halte later returned and told Ms Dorch that there had been an accident and that he needed help. Heike Dorsch has also made accusations of sexual abuse from the same guard.
Police officers have found human remains including teeth in the ashes of a fire. They are looking for the guide, Halti in order to find out what has happened.
At this time rumours are widespread about what has happened to Stefan, some suggesting that he was hacked to death, burned and then eaten by cannibals, others that he was sacrificed to an ancient South Pacific god, a ritual common to these parts over 200 years ago.
Our thoughts go out to all Stefan Ramins family and friends at this terrible time and we really hope that if he has indeed been murdered that the perpetrator or perpetrators are caught and given an appropriate sentence.
