A police officer made the gruesome discovery on Friday. After a thorough search by law enforcement and the Coast Guard, two decapitated heads were found on the boat.
The boat measured approximately 7.6 meters (24.9 feet) long, 4.3 meters (14 feet) wide and 2 meters (6.5 feet) high. The discovered bodies were “partially skeletonized,” according to NHK.
The ghost ship is believed to have come from North Korea as the sides was covered in Korean numbers and letters in red paint.
