NY Times For Kon-Tiki Theory, Ray of Hope Is Dashed: "Meanwhile, the Peruvians decided to return the slaves whom they had improperly captured, though many had died from harsh labor or disease. A ship set out with 470 liberated slaves, but 439 died from disease, and their bodies were thrown overboard. The captain dropped off 15 survivors at Easter Island and the rest at Rapa."
