[www.inewsguyana.com] – The results from the samples taken from the female remains which were discovered at Turkeyen, Greater Georgetown in July have not yet been released.

The remains are suspected to be that of missing St. Stanislaus school teacher, Nyozi Goodman and the samples were sent to Trinidad and Tobago since August for DNA testing.

However, the Guyana Police Force appears reluctant to say whether the results have returned or not. The results were expected in the country some three weeks ago; however, when contacted by iNews for an update, Crime Chief, Leslie James refused to divulge any information as to whether the results are back.

“When that information is available we will let you now,” James told iNews.

Goodman’s mother had indicated that the remains are that of her child, by identifying an underwear and belt spotted near the remains.

Colleagues of the missing 34 – year – old woman even assisted the Benschop Foundation during a search for the teacher that found two items in the Botanical gardens which is believed to be her belongings. ‎The Foundation is offering a reward for useful information into the woman’s disappearance.

The woman’s relatives remain puzzled over her disappearance without a trace following a basketball game at the National Gymnasium on July 6.

According to reports, after 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 Teacher.

No one saw who picked her up or where she went and calls to her phone went unanswered. Checks at her William Street Kitty residents also came up empty handed.

The single woman is said to be five feet, five inches tall and dark brown in complexion. Goodman has been a teacher for almost a decade and teaches Geography and Social Studies.
