Body flashes Ashore In Smuggler’s Cove

The body of a young man identified as Andrew Hornsbury was found by a small fishing crew early Wednesday. The men found the body floating in the waves as they set out for their morning shift.

Police have attempted to discern the cause of death, but the body has deteriorated to such a degree that it may be impossible.

Mr. Hornsbury was said to be on the islands in search of the cause of the disappearance of his uncle, a Mr. Derek Hornsbury, who has been missing for nearly a year now. Additional rumors have been circulating that he was in search of a treasure, though no evidence has been found.

Mr. Hornsbury is survived by his sister, Mrs. Clara Hornsbury Whittingham, of Southerham.
