    Man's head found in fish

    Sara Bradford, Cairns bureau
    30aug00

    THE head of a man was found in the belly of a giant cod in Cairns yesterday.

    Police are waiting on results of a post mortem examination today but it is expected to be that of fisherman, Michael Peter Edwards, 39.
    Mr Edwards fell overboard from the fishing boat, Loray, east of Slashers Reef 95km north-east of Townsville on Sunday.

    An intensive search had failed to find him and it is believed the cod was caught in that general area.

    The grisly discovery was made just after 1pm yesterday at Cairns wholesalers, A Fine Kettle O'Fish, as staff began preparing the 44kg, 160cm flowery cod for processing.

    Fine Kettle O'Fish director Peter Monson described yesterday as "a bit of an unusual day" at the factory.

    He said the staff had been "more than surprised" to find the human remains.

    "In the past we have found a 9kg Chinaman fish intact inside the intestines of a cod of a similar size," he said. "The cods have a huge mouth span."

    Fine Kettle O'Fish managing director Graeme Hopkirk said: "It was an unfortunate incident . . . it was found while we were processing other fish as well.

    "We just want to get back to work."

    Mr Hopkirk said the cod was caught by a Cairns fisherman but police would not comment on whether it had been among the catch brought in by the Loray.

    Det Snr Sgt Dave Miles of Cairns CIB said the head and fish were retained for a post mortem examination.

    "We hope forensic testing will identify the remains," he said.

    Shortly after the grisly discovery, Townsville Water Police called off the search for Mr Edwards.

    Actually they breed them pretty tough in Queensland.. A farmer lost an arm in some fencing equipment, so he walked 2.5 km back home, got his wife, drove back, retrived the arm and went to the doctor. Unfortunately they couldnt save it, but man.. thats pretty tough!

    Further disturbing developments in the Head-in-a-fish saga.

    The fish was caught by the fishing boat the head's owner worked for. And police havent wrote off a possible homicide investigation, and will not confirm wether the said head was torn or cut from the victim.

    And yes, I'm pretty sure discovering your beloved's head was found inside a giant cod would be a touch traumatic

    Eww! Icky icky!

    This story reminded me of my uncle, who is an avid fisherman, and he's also a surgeon, so he's never squeamish about slicing up a fish. He just takes the fish in one hand and a knife in the other and makes five or six quick slashes and bam, there you have a couple of filets in a bowl, and over here, the bloody remains of a fish. Something he always does is cut open the stomach and see what the fish ate. It's pretty cool, sometimes you find crawdads or other little fish that the big fish swallowed whole. But as far as I know, he's never yet found a human head. I think that would gross out even my uncle!

    Yeh, its pretty common for fishermen to 'look inside'.. theory is if you know what they are eating, you know what to put on your hook.

    So the lesson is if you wanna catch giant cod, better find a spare head lying round somewhere!

    Pretty funny how the workers described it as "a bit of an unusual day".
    If it were me finding that, you'd here me screaming all the way over here in the States.

    Yeah...I think if it happened over here, there'd be a big lawsuit and stuff...geez, talk about a public relations nightmare for the company! I'm sure that would be great for business...you brand name on a frozen box of fish and think, "Gee, isn't that the company who found a human head in a fish stomach in their factory?" Ewww...
