Forensics confirm that the bones found in Dana's search are human

Forensics of the Institute of Legal Medicine (IML) of Malaga have verified that the bones found this week by the Civil Guard in the Dana Leonte search device are of human origin.

As SUR has advanced today, the skeletal remains were located on Tuesday during the beating that agents continue to perform on the periphery of Arenas to find the body of the young woman. They were some distance away from the place where the victim's femur was found on the 21st.

The bones were sent to the Institute of Legal Medicine (IML) of Malaga, where they were examined yesterday by two forensic doctors. The doctors gave their first opinion to the Civil Guard in the afternoon: they are of human origin.

It is specifically a fibula, part of a tibia and several vertebrae, as confirmed by research sources. Now, these bone remains will be sent to the Civil Guard Criminalistics Service, where they will be subjected to DNA tests to check if they belong to Dana Leonte.
