Holiday Nightmare - To Be Eaten By Cannibals

A word of warning - if you intend to travel to French Polynesia for a bit of R & R, then take my advice and steer well clear of the island of Nuku Hiva!

According to experts, German sailor Stefan Ramin was "hacked to pieces and burned" before being eaten by cannibals at this tropical paradise.

In 2008, Ramin and his girlfriend set off on the adventure of a lifetime - a yacht voyage around the world... The remote island of Nuku Hiva was the last place Mr Ramin was seen alive.

Now burned remains have been discovered and they are believed to be that of the missing yachtsman. Further tests are required for confirmation.

According to police, Mr Ramin set off on a hunting trip with local tour guide, Henri Haiti. However Mr Haiti returned alone, and when he alerted Mr Ramin's girlfriend that there had been some kind of accident, he proceeded to try and sexually assault her.

She was lucky enough to escape from the tree that Haiti had tied her to and alerted the local authorities.

Police and soldiers have been searching for Haiti for the last seven days since he took flight.

Nuku Hiva, in French Polynesia has a population of just 2,789, and is known for it's unique goat hunting adventures (not to mention the 'people eaters').
