At least 20 severely decomposed bodies were found on a boat off the coast of northeastern Brazil, authorities reported. The boat was found off the coast of Bragança, northeast of Pará, on April 13, according to Brazil’s Federal Public Ministry.

Two investigations have been opened since the discovery of the bodies. Authorities explained that at least 20 bodies had been found on the boat, but due to the decomposition of the remains, it is unknown how many individuals died on the boat.
