The remains of British journalist Dom Phillips were recognised by Brazilian police on Friday. He went missing earlier this month and was discovered nearly ten days later buried in the Amazon rainforest. Phillips was on his way to do some research for a book. On June 5, the 57-year-old journalist and his guide, Bruno Pereira, disappeared in a secluded region of the Amazon.

Illegal mining, fishing, and drug trafficking are all common in the area. According to the news agency AFP, a suspect led police to a location near the city of Atalaia do Norte where he claimed to have buried victims. Phillips and his guide were on their way to the location in a boat. The human remains were then transported to Brasilia to be identified. They belonged to Phillips, according to a forensic dental examination.

THE BRAZILIAN POLICE DEPARTMENT DENIED THAT A CRIMINAL ORGANISATION WAS INVOLVED IN THE MURDERS.

Investigations found that the perpetrators “acted alone,” according to the police. “The investigations are ongoing, and there are suspicions that other people may have been involved in the murders,” police told AFP. Phillips had been a regular contributor to The Guardian and other publications for many years.

He was said to be working on a book about Amazonian sustainable development. In the meantime, the US has called for “accountability and justice” in the case. Ned Prince, a spokesperson for the US State Department, expressed sympathy to the grieving families.

He said that the journalist and his guide were assassinated because they advocated for the preservation of the rainforest and the area’s indigenous people.

President Jair Bolsonaro, a frequent adversary of media and Indigenous experts, has been accused of failing to intervene quickly enough. He had previously chastised Phillips in an interview, claiming without evidence that locals in the area where he went missing disliked him and that he should have exercised greater caution in the area.

Former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, his major election opponent, said in a statement that the killings “are directly tied to the destruction of public policy of protection for Indigenous peoples.” “It’s also tied to the current administration’s violence-inducing stimulus,” said da Silva, who is polling at the top.
