    'The power of the demons was stronger than the will to live': Mummified mariner's haunting tributes to his dead wife are found along with fading photos that provide clues to his life

    • Manfred Fritz Bajorat, 59, found off coast of Barobo in Surigao del Sur

    • A letter to his late wife was uncovered as well as old family photos

    • Decomposing body was near radio telephone as if he was trying last call

    • Dry ocean winds, hot temperatures and salty air helped preserve his body

    • It is unclear what killed Manfred or how long he has been dead

    Very sad.
    Wonder why he wasn't able to get an s.o.s. out ; and if he died of a heart attack, or something ?
    At least his surviving family members will be able to bury him now.

    This article and the photos make no sense. He died 7 days before he was found and his "mummified" body was found? Wouldn't that just be a decomposed body? And why does that dead person have a full head of hair when the pic of the man shows him nearly bald? And does a body decompose THAT much in a week, and stay seated in that position with an unmanned yacht bobbing all over the water? Not buying this.

    I'll reserve an opinion for a full autopsy by a licensed MD, ME in a westernized nation. Germany will do.

    I didn't realize someone could get that degraded that fast. It looks like he's been there for a long time. I'm sure they'll have an autopsy in the country of his origin.

    But he was gone for decades? Why? What happened to his wife?

    Something ain't right, IMO. If I read correctly, he was gone for 20 years? Where was he?

    They do have licensed MDs in the Philippines. As a matter of fact many Filipino Doctors move to the US and continue their practice here. I&#8217;m pretty sure the MDs in the Philippines are more then competent to do an autopsy.
