US MIA searchers find human remains in Cambodia

Tuesday, April 13, 2010


PHNOM PENH, Cambodia – A U.S. government search team has found fragments of human remains at what could be the grave site of photographer Sean Flynn, son of Hollywood star Errol Flynn, who disappeared during the Vietnam War 40 years ago.

A spokesman for the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command said Monday that at least a few shards from a skull were found by a seven-member recovery team last week.

Lt. Colonel Wayne Perry said the team has been digging at the same site where Australian Dave MacMillan and Briton Keith Rotheram unearthed remains last month, but are exploring deeper and over a wider area than the amateur sleuths did.

At least 37 journalists died or disappeared in Cambodia in 1970-75, in a conflict that pitted a U.S.-backed government against the communist Khmer Rouge.
