Investigators from the Corozal Police need the help of members of the public in identifying the body of a woman which was found off the road which connects the Chan Chen and Patchakan Villages. Police believe that she was killed sometime over the Easter Holidays either Sunday, April 20, or Monday, April 21.

 The body was discovered on Tuesday at around 2:35 p.m., where it had been dumped off the main road in the swamp area known as the Savannahs. The woman’s body was completely nude, and her head was missing its hair. It was in advanced state of decomposition, and it showed signs that wild animals had been feeding on it.

An on-sight post-mortem by Dr. Mario Estradabran certified that she had been chopped to death, and because of the secluded location, and the absence of clues, it is believed that she was killed in another area, and her assailant or assailants disposed of her body in the swamp knowing that it is a deserted location with very limited traffic.

The woman is believed to be in her early 20’s, with brown skin, silver coverings on her front teeth, and her toe nails were painted orange. She remains unidentified at this time, police are hoping that members of the public can help to identify her. She was buried shortly after the post-mortem was conducted on her body. The doctor searched for possible signs that she had been raped, but those tests were inconclusive.
