Cruising hazard - cannibalism

Fears of cannibalism were raised after a German world cruiser failed to return from a hunting trip in Nuku Hiva French Polynesia. His guide had returned, tied up and abused the man's partner, and body parts were found in a campfire.

Wow! That sounds like something straight from a Michael Crichton Book.

In Practical Seamanship Steve Dashew calls Nuku Hiva the most beautiful anchorage in the world.

Bones in a fire are not evidence of cannibalism. Bones in bowls and bones with toothmarks are evidence of cannibalism. Bones in a fire are evidence that somebody thinks there's no way to identify a body once you burn it.

Without further evidence, the cannibalism suggestion is borderline racist.

Well, we are dealing with the media after all...

Suggesting that cannibals would eat from bowls and not plates is also borderline racist. But otherwise, I think you're on the right track.

After reading the article, I think the guide just probably killed him, hacked him up and tried to burn him up. The guide did go back and chain the girlfriend to a tree and molested her.
