The corpse from the Porchabella-glacier in the Grisons, Switzerland (community of Bergün)
“These remains are human without doubt, and they have been photographed in their original position; I refer to the adjoining sheet of pictures (Fig. 3). Afterwards they were collected and taken away. The other day they were given for further examination to the police officer Giger from the department of criminal investigation of the canton of Grisons. There were no objects that would have allowed a reliable determination of its age or even an identification.
But it can be assumed that these remains are very old and come from a male person.
It cannot be excluded that in due time the glacier will expose further remains of the body. For future comparison copies of the photographs have been left with tha records at the police station.”
