Sailor Feared Eaten on Polynesian Island

Man's charred bones found in campfire

A German yachstman who disappeared on the Polynesian island of Nuku Hiva may have been eaten by a cannibal, authorities say.

Haiti later returned alone, and, after telling Ramin's girlfriend Heike Dorsch that Ramin had had an "accident," tied her to a tree and sexually assaulted her before fleeing.
