In 2006, a Belizean farmer in Cayo District heard screams coming from a looter, who was out to hunt for artifacts into this cave.
Apparently, the looter fell off from the rope he was holding on to and the farmer rushed to his help.
There were different versions of the stories mentioned above, but one thing was certain – the looter was rescued by a farmer, who then discovered that within that cave are thousands of smashed up human bones.
According to reports, a looter fell 18 meters into a cave in Belize.
A decade later, scientists who studied the remains have concluded that they came from individuals who were 14 years old and below. At the annual conference of the American Association of Physical Anthropologist held in Atlanta this month, California State University bioarchaeologist Michael Prout discussed the 9,566 bones and fragments found inside the cave.
A local farmer in Belize discovered a cave filled with bones.
Shockingly, most of those fragments belonged to children between the ages of four and 10.
The cave earned its name “Midnight Terror Cave” and it is now widely believed that the area was once a sacrificial pit during the Mayan civilization.
Experts believe that the cave was linked to ritualistic killings during the ancient Mayan civilization.
Child sacrifices can be traced way back in ancient times.
Child sacrifices can be traced way back in ancient times. The remains found in Belize were said to be related to such ritualistic killings since evidence points that the children didn’t die due to natural causes and the bones had cut marks on them. But the terrifying discovery made by archaeologists is that none of the remains belonged to children from Belize.
“No one’s from Belize, so that means we have this population of children that was brought in from somewhere else for the purpose of sacrifice,” Samantha Lorenz, a California State graduate, who performed chemical analysis on the teeth, shared.
The investigation is ongoing.
This then led many to believe that these children were taken from different regions and were part of a child trafficking ring. The investigation on the remains is currently open and results will soon be published.

This Power Station Can Harvest Kinetic Wave Energy And Turn It Into Electricity
It’s always amazing when brilliant people put their minds together to build stuff that benefit mankind - such as this praiseworthy project called Wave Star Energy.
Located in Denmark, this facility has been created to tap widely-available kinetic wave power and convert it into electricity. The power station does its job with its kinetic-energy harvesters (called ‘floats’) which move up and down with the kinetic motion of the waves. The plan is to have each full scale device to be equipped with at least 20 floats of10 m (66 feet) in diameter to maximize its full potential.
The Wave Star Energy is a power station that converts kinetic wave energy into electricity.
17-Year-Old Discovers An Ingenious Way Of Cleaning Polluted Streams
Her practical pollution cleaner is made out of Styrofoam and hair clips!
A 17-year-old girl just won herself a $150,000 college scholarship with her clever seaweed-based gel that effectively cleans polluted streams.
The Bangor, Maine aspiring MacGyver concocted an ingenious substance from seaweed to create an "alginate" gel that she mixed with aluminum and magnesium. Anchored in place by blocks of foam and plastic hair clips, she successfully trapped polluting phosphorus in local streams, earning her the Global Good Prize Award.
