Manfred Bajorat’s mummified body was found in the sea
The mummified body of German sailor was found towards the coast of Barobo in Surigao del Sur, one of the Philippian’s island.
Based on the documents found in a yacht, Police named the victim as Manfred Fritz Bajorat, 59.
Manfred Bajorat’s mummified body was found by two fishermen in a white yacht with the sails broken. There were many pictures of Bajorat’s inside the yacht, which was mostly underwater, photo albums were strewn everywhere along with canned food.
The body was found seated at a desk in the radio room, collapsed over his right arm and it seems like he was sleeping.
He had not been seen since 2009 but his friend told to media that he had heard from the mariner in 2015 via Facebook.
There was a letter in front of Captain Bajorat to his dead wife, who died of cancer. “Thirty years we’ve been together on the same path. Then the power of the demons was stronger than the will to live. You’re gone. May your soul find its peace, Your Manfred,” his haunting letter read.
“The way he is sitting seems to indicate that death was unexpected, perhaps from a heart attack.” Told by Dr Mark Benecke, a forensic criminologist in the German city of Cologne.
Another world sailor told Germany’s Bild daily newspaper, ‘He was a very experienced sailor. I don’t believe he would have sailed into a storm. I believe the mast broke after Manfred was already dead.’
From the last 20 years, Mr Bajorat had reportedly been sailing around the world. His body was given to her daughter Nina, who runs a freight ship.
