VOR: Chilean police investigate sailor's disappearance – AFP report

Wednesday, April 4, 2018

PUERTO MONTT, CHILE – In what presumably is a perfunctory investigation by the Chilean police concerning the loss at sea of John Fisher (GBR/AUS), the the French news agency AFP is reporting that SHK/Scallywag "...crewmembers were interviewed 'and on the instructions of the prosecutor, members of the homicide brigade and the forensic police carried out their investigations in relation to the accident,' police spokesman Cesar Fonseca said."


So much for VOR media trying to keep quiet where in Chile Scallywag had docked in at dawn this (Tuesday) morning. Full story here.


According to the AFP, Chilean police officers listen to a crew member of the SHK/Scallywag yacht after arriving in Puerto Montt, Chile, early this morning, in re. crewman John Fisher, presumed dead after going overboard during Leg 7 of the Volvo Ocean Race from Auckland to Itajaí, Brazil on South America's east coast.
