Two legs, two arms, and a torso were found in the stomach of a 12-foot tiger shark caught off the coast of the Exuma islands, the United Kingdom's Press Association reports.  According to Bahamanian Assistant Police Commissioner Glenn Miller, forensic scientists are conducting DNA analysis in an effort to identify the remains.

Assistant Commissioner Miller noted that the remains appeared to be more than a day old, but it was unclear whether the person was alive or already dead at the time of consumption.  He added that two people were recently reported missing on the archipelago.
