Human remains found in the wreck of the Costa Concordia are believed to be the last victim of the ship’s 2012 capsize, according to Italian officials.
Workers for the salvage firm recovered the body from a cabin and handed it to the authorities to be identified.
They believe it is Indian waiter Russel Rebello, the last of 32 victims to be recovered from the wreck, the BBC reported.
The ship partially sank in January 2012 after it hit a reef off the Italian island of Giglio. The Concordia was finally raised from the sea in July and towed to Genoa to be scrapped.
The captain, Francesco Schettino, is on trial for manslaughter and abandoning ship, charges he denies.
This is the third time local officials have said Rebello’s remains might have been found.
Tests on the other two occasions determined that the remains were not his.
