  • Not likely but not impossible. Dr. Robert Ballard did find spots on the ocean floor where it was obvious that bodies had fallen, but all that was left were the shoes. And in one spot, what looks like a sailors over coat, with shoes properly placed where a body landed. As for the deep interior, that's another matter. James Cameron did find that a lot of wood paneling is still in place in the interior so I wouldn't be surprised if eventually a skull were to be found.

  • The categorical assertion that "There are currently no bodies or skeletal remains at the Titanic wreck site" has been a CYA tactic used by RMSTI since the days of George Tulloch and his plundering of the wreck; he repeatedly cited it and even got a pair of Titanic "historians" to sign off on his assertion that the ship was deserted when it went under. It was meant as a camouflage for the way that Tulloch conducted his salvage operations, basically using a "smash and grab" method. Happily RMSTI has mended its ways and conducts its recoveries in a far more responsible manner these days--but they are still being watched like a hawk by those members of the Titanic community who aren't financially bound or in some other manner beholden to them. A more correct statement would be that "No bodies or skeletal remains have yet been found at the Titanic wreck site." As an earlier poster pointed out, some wood has survived deep inside the wreck, so it is conceivable, though highly unlikely, that there could be partial human remains in the lower decks. A century is an awfully long time for unprotected human remains to survive in a biologically active deep-sea environment.

  • Yes, someday you might be able to find a skull, bones, or things like that that do not decay easily. But it is highly unlikely that you would find bodies fully intact or even partially intact. You might be able to find a body that was inside a room or place inside the Titanic that sea creatures or humans have not been able to reach. It might have been preserved somehow, but again, it is highly unlikely.

  • An expedition last year revealed a skull deep within the ship, but it was half buried in silt, any remains are likely to be buried in the sand or long dissolved by small water bugs, which is the more likely culprit.
