The American visitor who discovered skeletal remains in Cades Bay on Sunday has said she is deeply affected by cases of missing women.
Dr Carolina Weaver told a local radio station today that she felt “very sad” after hearing the story about missing people here.
“It always bothered me about some of these missing women or even men,” she said.
Dr Weaver was on a hike when she made the shocking discovery.
She revealed in an interview with Observer Radio that she also took a keen interest in the Natalie Holloway case. The Eighteen-year-old never showed up for a flight home from Aruba on May 30, 2005.
“That Natalie Holloway case has affected me for a very long time. I refuse to go to Aruba and I kinda campaigned about that for a long time,” she said.
Since the discovery, at least one other piece of bone has been found as lawmen continue their investigation.
They are sending samples to a neighboring Caribbean island in an effort to identify the body.
A pair of black female slippers was also found with the remains. The police are working with families of missing people to help identify the remains.
