Remains of a missing man is found in a shark

In southern Argentina, the remains of a man who had disappeared earlier this month were found inside a school shark caught by local fishermen. The family of Diego Barría, 32, identified his remains due to a visible tattoo. Barría had been last seen near the coast in the southern Chubut province, riding his all-terrain vehicle late on Feb. 18. The damaged ATV was found on Feb. 20 on a beach near Rocas Coloradas, but there was no sign of Barría, and an intense search began.

Early Sunday morning, two fishermen found human remains inside one of the three school sharks they had caught near Barría’s ATV’s location. Investigators are currently working on the hypothesis that Barría “had an accident and was dragged.” The remains will undergo DNA testing to confirm their identity officially.

The school shark is considered harmless to people due to its relatively small size and preference for small prey. However, according to the International Shark Attack File, one unprovoked attack on a human has been attributed to this species. Officials are continuing to investigate the incident to determine what exactly happened to Barría. Virginia Brugger, Barría’s partner, wrote on Facebook last week, “The kids are already asking for you!…We’re waiting for you.” After the remains were found, Brugger wrote, “My heart went with you! I love you forever.”

According to the Florida Museum, a school shark is a strong swimmer that can travel 35 miles in a day and is found from the open sea all the way inshore to the surf zone. Considered a vulnerable species, they can grow to over 6 feet long, and they generally eat smaller bony fish and invertebrates.
