Remains of Missing Tourist Found

Sad news from Cancun this morning as local media reports indicate that skeletal remains found near the Moon Palace hotel are those of missing Scottish tourist Julia Howard. State attorney Bello Melchor Rodríguez has confirmed that the remains found in the jungle in an area of jungle about 1.5 kms away from the Moon Palace are those of Ms. Howard. The identification was based on a metal hip prosthesis and other personal belongings identified as belonging to the missing woman, including a ring and a watch. According to Noticaribe's report, there were no signs of violence and the theory of the prosecutor is that the elderly woman wandered off and was unable to find her way back.

Ms. Howard was reported missing June 15th after she left her family at the hotel pool and did not return.

My personal condolences go out to the family and friends of Ms. Howard.


Oh, how very sad for her family. I'm glad to hear that no foul play is suspected.
