On Saturday morning, a passerby discovered the remains of a person at the edge of the forest.
No intact body was found.
The police of the canton of Thurgau is investigating in all directions.
On Saturday there was a police operation in Egnach TG. A passer-by who was privately on the southern edge of the “Sangehölzli” forest found the remains of a person shortly after 10am. As a result, he alerted the cantonal emergency center. “Whether the person was dead longer than they were found is the subject of clarification,” Daniel Meili, spokesman for Thurgau’s cantonal police, told 20 minutes Sunday.
The identity is still unclear. According to the police, it is currently unclear whether it is a male or female person. “We haven’t found the whole body,” says Meili.
The remains are being examined by order of the Bischofszell prosecutor’s office at the Institute of Forensic Medicine in St. Gallen to obtain clues as to the identity and cause of death of the unknown. The police continues to investigate in all directions. “Whether it’s an accident, natural death, suicide or crime, everything is still open,” said Meili.
Specialists from the forensic service of the Thurgau County Police and the Institute of Forensic Medicine St. Gallen have secured the traces on the site. The forest area was searched until the evening for further evidence. Objects were also found and locked up in the forest near the remains. According to the police, it is still unclear whether these are related to the body.
Anyone who has recently made unusual sightings in the Sangehölzli area that could help clarify the matter should contact the Thurgau Cantonal Police at the number 058345 22 22 Report.
