Man eaten by shark is identified

Police have identified the man found inside the belly of a 12-foot Tiger Shark caught in the Bahamas by his fingerprints.

The man and his friend were both reported missing after an Aug. 29 boating trip with three others off Jaws Beach in southwest New Providence. The boaters reported they had engine trouble on board the 20-foot white Century and they were reported missing at around 8 p.m.

Royal Bahamas Defence Force officers found the boat with three men on board and were told the two others had gone overboard in an effort to pull the boat to shore and never returned.
