Police yet to identify decomposed body found at Turkeyen

Screen Shot 2014-08-22 at 6.27.47 PMCommissioner of Police Seelall Persaud has confirmed that the body parts of the female found aback the Caricom Annex was sent to neighbouring Trinidad & Tobago for DNA tests to be conducted. He said Trinidad and Tobago was never used before but noted that there were some investments made in the Lab there.

The commissioner was speaking to members of the media at Eve Leary today.  Over the years the police have sent samples to Barbados, Jamaica, Brazil and the United States.

Persaud said the body parts were accompanied by a member of the Guyana Police Force..

Sources told this newscast that the woman was found with her underwear below her knees and parts of her body appeared to have been eaten by dogs and other animals around the area. The police are working on the theory that the woman may have been raped. Her hands were tied and a used condom was found on the scene.

Already there is speculation that the decomposed body could be that of the missing teacher Nyozi Goodman. But family members of the woman remain optimistic that Goodman is alive.

The teacher was last seen after she left a basketball game at the Gymnasium in July.
