Sea Monster Mystery Solved: Nuclear Radiation Caused Mutations in Bermuda

  Linda was an Indian Bollywood actress. In the spring of 2005, Linda met a doctor named Merck, and the two soon fell in love.
  Half a month later, the two came to the Bermuda Islands in the western Atlantic Ocean. In order to seek peace and quiet, the two rented a boat to an uninhabited island not far from the capital of Bermuda. That night, while collecting firewood, Linda suddenly shouted: “Merck, look, there is an irregular thing on the beach.” At this time, Linda had already walked to the thing and poked it with a small stick. Unexpectedly, the thing suddenly jumped up and instantly turned into a three-dimensional creature. Before Merck could react, the monster opened its mouth and swallowed Linda in one gulp. Merk quickly ran over with a wooden stick in hand, but the monster that swallowed Linda had quickly squirmed and got into the sea.
  After returning to India, Merck told Linda’s family and her agency what happened on the island, but no one believed him. Linda’s parents believed that Merck had killed their daughter, and angrily took Merck to court. Because there was no evidence, Merck was detained by the police for more than half a year, but there was no trial. In September 2006, the police handled the bail procedures for Merck, temporarily restoring his freedom.
  Uncovering the mystery:
  Linda’s departure was a big blow to Merck. He thought that only by catching the monster could he prove his innocence. In June 2008, Merck and the police went to the unknown island and finally captured the monster on the sixth day. Merck asked Mengesen, a professor of marine biology at the University of Bombay, for advice. Through computer searches, Mengesen found that the monster was very similar to the sea pig discovered during the 1960 Chilean tsunami. However, sea pigs feed on small animals and plankton in the deep sea. Why does this monster come to land and eat people? In the face of physical evidence, Merck was quickly cleared.
  Mengesen compared the monster’s DNA with sea pig samples found in Chile and found that the two creatures belonged to the same genus, but the monster’s genes had mutated.
  Through experiments, it was found that the raw slices of the monster contained more than 30 times the normal amount of radioactive element uranium. It turns out that nuclear radiation caused the monster’s genetic mutation. However, Bermuda is located in the Atlantic Ocean, how could it be exposed to nuclear radiation? Mengesen looked through the information and found that both the United States and the United Kingdom had established military bases in Bermuda. A U.S. military aircraft carrying a small nuclear warhead disappeared near the Bermuda Islands during the 1962 U.S.-Soviet-Cuban Missile Crisis, and the nuclear warhead was also missing. Mengesen reported this situation to the U.S. military. At the end of 2008, the U.S. military found the wreckage of the crashed plane and the rusty nuclear bomb at a depth of 4,200 meters on the unnamed island where the marine monster was discovered, eliminating hidden dangers. Although nuclear warheads have been eliminated, the legacy of short-term nuclear radiation cannot be completely eliminated.
  By the end of 2011, the police had captured three sea pigs with different degrees of mutation and dozens of animals with possible genetic mutations. Police are telling tourists traveling to Bermuda to stay away from the island for the time being.
