Construction workers were alarmed this afternoon after discovering skeletal remains while they were digging holes on a property located on Ambergris Street on October 14, 2011. Shortly after 1:00 p.m. San Pedro Police received a call from the workers to further investigate the matter.
Police called Dr. Javier Zuniga to the site and he confirmed that the skeletal remains were that of a human being. According to San Pedro Police the remains will be sent out to the Institute of Archaeology for Dr. Jaime Awe to conduct further investigations on the remains.
But this is not the first time that skeletal remains have been found at constructions sites in down town San Pedro. There have been quite a few instances when construction workers have discovered skeletal remains just like these. This has occurred during the construction of the Alijua Building and the one just behind it where Casa Pan Dulce and Lighthouse Christian Radio are located, including Sands Hotel and Martha’s Hotel.
