[www.inewsguyana.com] – Samples from the remains of the decomposed female which was discovered in a clump of bushes at Turkeyen lower East Coast Demerara have not yet left Guyana for testing.
Crime Chief, Leslie James told iNews that the Police Force is still contemplating several options available, while looking at past experiences with the sending samples to other countries for testing.
The samples were taken to ascertain if the remains were that of missing school teacher Nyozi Goodman who went missing almost a month ago after attending a basketball game with her students.
The missing teacher’s mother did indicate to sections of the media that the remains which were discovered were that of her daughter pointing to a belt which was discovered close to the body.
Persons have been arrested and questioned in relation to the disappearance but no one has been charged.
The decomposed remains were found on July 25 by a man who went to relieve himself in the area. Goodman disappeared without a trace following a basketball game at the National Gymnasium on July 6.
The woman, who has been a teacher for almost a decade and teaches Geography and Social Studies at the St. Stanislaus College, had reportedly accompanied another teacher and students from her school.
According to her brother, Nestor Thompson following the game, she told the students to go ahead since someone will pick her up to drop her home, but that was the last anyone would see of the woman.
