Body on yacht had gunshot to face

January 10, 2016 | By KNews | Filed Under News
Local investigators have contacted their French counterparts as they collaborate to probe the death of Frenchman Michel Bozier, whose body along with that of his dog was found on a yacht 200 miles off the coast of Guyana.

The “Allegro” moored at the GDF Coastguard wharf.

Local police took possession of the body yesterday after the yacht, “Allegro”, was brought into Port Georgetown by the Guyana Defence Force Coastguard.
According to Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum, the body bore a gunshot wound to the face which is consistent with a shotgun blast.
The dog was also shot dead with a shotgun.
Blanhum said that while a post mortem examination has not yet been performed on the body, investigators are looking at every possible theory, including suicide as the reason for Bozier’s death.
A shotgun was found under the face…There were three other shotguns in the cabin,” the Crime Chief said.
From all indications no one else was on the vessel when Bozier died, since according to the Crime Chief, everything was intact, including credit cards belonging to the dead man.
Investigators were able to ascertain from documents found on the yacht that Bozier celebrated his 70th birthday two months ago.
The yacht bearing the bodies of Bozier and his dog was first spotted on January 5 by the crew of a tanker vessel which was moving from Jamaica to Brazil.
The crew sent a transmission which was picked up by the local coastguard, who subsequently informed the relevant agencies. The coast guard was provided with the reading of where the sighting was made.
Using the information, the Guyana Defence Force sent out its Skyvan to conduct a flyover survey to confirm the information.
After this was done, the aircraft returned to the coast and a team from the Maritime Administration, the GDF and the Guyana Police Force went to the location and brought the French registered yacht into port.

Re: Man and dog found dead on yacht

Now the speculation has fuel to run rampant. Not to be insensitive at a time like this, especially to the family of the deceased but perhaps this thread should be linked to the threads, How Old is Too Old or Where to Find Cheap Boats. Hopefully not to Pirate Threads.

It's going to be very interesting to see how this progresses.

Re: Man and dog found dead on yacht

My theory is holding. Here is my order or priority:
  1. double suicide - man killed dog then self
  2. double suicide - dog killed man then self
  3. double suicide - man killed self then dog
  4. double suicide - dog killed self then man

Re: Man and dog found dead on yacht

Shotgun wound to the face, and shotgun found under the victim's face. Three other shotguns found onboard. No evidence of anyone else onboard, and victim's credit cards & other personal effects found intact. Boat found drifiting 200 miles offshore -- presumably engine off -- with headsail removed from furler & mainsail down, but boat otherwise appearing in good order.

Not hard to speculate to myself on cause of death, but maybe best to wait on add'l info, most significantly perhaps the results of the autopsy.

Flipping to the other side. This is a terribly sad lonely story. Let's just give thanks for having whatever good things we have in our own lives.

Re: Man and dog found dead on yacht

A sad mess to leave for others to clean up. Sail into a port, let the dog go ashore. Sign over the paperwork for the vessel to a needy family or charity. One last good deed is better than nothing but a mess,
