Officials announced on Sunday that a boat carrying 20 dead was found about a mile away from Grand Turk Island last week.
A small boat was discovered by a fisherman on Thursday, who warned police.
Takara Bain, a correspondent at the Turks and Caicos Islands Police Department, said investigators have ruled out fraud but are still working to identify how the deaths occurred.
According to Police Secretary Trevor Botting, the small boat arrived from outside the Caribbean Sea.
Botting added that authorities did not believe the boat’s destination was the Turks and Caicos Islands.
“My investigators are working to establish their identities and how they encountered their death,” Botting said.
