The authorities here have completed post mortems on two decomposing bodies that were found in a Jamaican registered fishing boat.

However their identities have not been released as investigators say formal identification is pending from another jurisdiction.

One of the men is believed to be between 25 and 40 years old while the other is thought to be over 50 years old.

According to a report in the Cayman Compass Newspaper, the Coroner who was flown in to perform the post mortems, could not immediately determine the cause of death, due to the advanced state of decomposition.

The 28-foot boat was floating 13 miles southwest of Little Cayman, when it was discovered last month by the Royal Cayman Islands Police Marine Unit.
