WA Police have revealed no human remains were found during an investigation into a potential “burial site” on a remote island off the Kimberley coast. Police launched the probe after seafarers discovered rock arrangements and a cross at the Rowley Shoals, about 300km north west of Broome. Following an “extensive” investigation which included a “large scale” excavation of the area, police confirmed there was no evidence of a burial site. “Following reports of possible burial sites at Rowley Shoals, WA Police conducted an extensive investigation of the area and found no evidence of human or skeletal remains,” a police spokeswoman said. Broome detectives and Kimberley forensic officers were deployed to the island by boat on November 27 before the investigation concluded. Police say “no further action” will be undertaken following the conclusion of the investigation. In November police received approval from the State Coroner before they deployed “specialist forensic” resources to the remote site. “Broome detectives are aware and strategically planning the deployment of resources to the area,” the spokesman said. There were fears the suspected burial sites could be linked to the Indonesian fishing boats that sank off the area during Cyclone Ilsa earlier this year. While 11 of the fishermen were miraculously rescued, nine were unaccounted for.
