Was Tourist Eaten by Cannibals? Police say no.

I read an article from the eTN Global News claiming the disappearance on the remote island of Nuku Hiva, of the German tourist, Stephan Ramin,  possibly ended with his being cannibalized.  Just as quickly I found an article on Fox with police denying such a fate was met by the missing tourist. 

Regardless of how it happened, I feel for his family who have lost him and don’t have all the answers surrounding the circumstances of his disappearance and his fate.

Here are links to both articles for you to read as well as some links to information about the French Polynesian Islands.
