Push to solve shark mys­tery

Sunday Territorian - - NEWS -

A HU­MAN skull, arm and pelvis found in the stom­ach of a mas­sive shark caught off the NSW coast have be­come one of the great chal­lenges of a new elite po­lice team charged with solv­ing miss­ing per­sons mys­ter­ies.

The 370kg tiger shark was caught 18 years ago off Black­smiths, on the NSW cen­tral coast. A DNA pro­file from the bones has not suc­cess­fully matched against miss­ing per­son records or data­bases.

There are 330 files on uniden­ti­fied NSW re­mains, and a new team of po­lice is push­ing to put a name to all of them.
