A horrifying discovery was made by two operators this Saturday while they were cleaning the irrigation canals of a ditch in Valencia. They ran into, nothing more and nothing less, than a human skull without a jaw that floated through the water channel, full of weeds after the last rains that occurred in the capital of the Turia.
Once the Emergency service was alerted, Civil Guard agents and a forensic woman on duty took the reins of the investigation into the discovery of the skull, focused on trying to recover the remains of the body or, at least, the maximum number of bones, through a device that will start this next week.
At the moment, there is no record of the identity of the discovered skull, from which forensic specialists will extract DNA samples to find out its genetic profile and check if there is any match in the database of the Civil Guard and the National Police.
Thus, both the sex and the approximate date of death are unknown, although the first observation shows that there are no signs of violence. The agents and operators closed the gate of the ditch to prevent the entry of water and when the water level of the canal is reduced, they will begin the tracking of the rest of the body, which seems complicated given the extensive network of canals that Valencia has.
