The body of a man between 30 and 40 years of age suddenly appeared early Sunday morning on the beach of Progreso, alerting the authorities because the subject had no identification and his face was not known to the radar of the local police, so it could be one of the castaways who were news in the sister port of Dzilam Bravo.

The discovery occurred at 98th street at about one o’clock in the morning. This, when a couple of young people were making a tour of the coastal area of the western sector of the municipal capital and spotted a bundle, which to their surprise turned out to be the body of a male.

In a matter of minutes, visitors and locals who were out at night were also aware of the macabre scene, which led to an emergency call that forced the municipal police to deploy an operation and report it to the State Investigation Police (PEI) and the Forensic Medical Service (SEMEFO) for the respective protocols regarding the removal of the body.

Even the Red Cross paramedics were present, but there was nothing to do, as the body had no vital signs. Part of the characteristics showed that he was a man with dark skin, approximately 1.60 meters, thin build and bulky hair. He was wearing blue denim shorts, a long-sleeved black T-shirt and no shoes.

Some of the people camping on the sides of the corpse had to leave as soon as possible due to the presence of minors, while the dozens of curious onlookers who came en masse to see the sighting after leaving their night activities were removed by about twenty SSP and DSPT elements who cordoned off the area.

During the work carried out by the PEI, it became known among the crowd that it could be one of the fishermen from the boat “Danielito” based in the port of Dzilam. On Thursday of this same week it was reported that Willian Antonio González Sánchez (a) “Meca” and Joshua Israel López Zapata (a) “Krispin” were missing.

According to information gathered, on the night of March 1st, “el Meca” and “Krispín” went out to leave their nets at sea, aboard the boat “Danielito” and returned to the port, but after returning the next day to pick them up with flake species, they simply did not come back.

It is presumed that the two fishermen were lost six nautical miles from the port of Dzilam de Bravo and could have been victims of a strong gust of wind from the “Surada” that would have overturned their boat. It was their relatives who informed the authorities about the disappearance of these popular fishermen of this municipality.

In case it is not a crew member of the “Danielito“, everything suggests that it was a man who simply succumbed to the tide and drowned, however this is ruled out, since he would have had to go to sea during the night.
