The Thurgau canton police are investigating in all directions.
On Saturday there was a police operation in Egnach TG. A passer-by who was privately on the southern edge of the forest of the “Sangehölzli” found the remains of a person shortly after 10 o’clock. As a result, he alerted the cantonal emergency call center. “Whether the person had been dead longer than they were found is the subject of clarification,” said Daniel Meili, spokesman for the Thurgau cantonal police, on Sunday opposite 20 minutes.
The identity is still unclear. According to the police, it is currently unclear whether it is a male or female person. “We didn’t find the entire body,” says Meili.
The remains are being examined on behalf of the Bischofszell public prosecutor at the Institute for Forensic Medicine in St. Gallen in order to obtain clues as to the identity and cause of death of the unknown person. The police continue to investigate in all directions. “Whether it is an accident, a natural death, suicide or a crime, everything is still open,” said Meili.
Specialists from the forensic science service of the Thurgau canton police and the Institute for Forensic Medicine St. Gallen secured the traces at the site. The forest area was searched for further evidence until evening. Objects were also found and secured in the forest near the remains. According to the police, it is still unclear whether these are related to the corpse.
Anyone who has recently made unusual observations in the Sangehölzli area that could help clarify the case should contact the Thurgau cantonal police on the number 058 345 22 22 Report.
