remains in shark's stomach identified
Wednesday 13th June 2001
The human head and bone found in the stomach of a tiger shark off Australia's coast has been identified as belonging to an elderly man.
Police say the remains are those of Arthur Applet, 75.
He was last seen walking along Middle Beach on Lord Howe Island, 440 miles north east of Sydney. (continued)
Scott Wilson and Mark Thompson caught the 12 foot long shark off the island and discovered the remains when they sliced it open.
Police had earlier said the body parts may also have belonged to Ross Symens, who also went missing close to where the shark was caught.
They would not speculate as to how Mr Applet ended up in the shark's stomach.
