Skeletal remains, blue coveralls, and a sun-bleached life jacket emblazoned with the words SAIGON QUEEN were recently found on a beach in the Maldives.  Images were sent to us by a gCaptain reader from the Maldives, however out of respect for the deceased, we did not publish the images of the actual body.

The M/V Saigon Queen sank off Sri Lanka this past October, 4 of 22 crew members on board the vessel were never found, with the exception of the body which has yet to be positively identified.
