A photograph depicting what a federal official claims to be human remains entombed in the mud surrounding the RMS Titanic’s wreckage site has been released in its full form to the public for the first time.

“These are not shoes that fell out neatly from somebody’s bag right next to each other,” director of maritime heritage at the National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration James Delgado told the Associated Press.

Delgado went on to say the placement of the remains are very likely the remains of a victim who found their final resting place on the ocean floor. “I as an archaeologist would say those are human remains,” he said, according the Associated Press. “Buried in that sediment are very likely forensic remains of that person.”
