[www.inewsguyana.com] – The samples from the remains which were found at the Cummings Lodge Cemetery in October and suspected to be that of Businessman Mohamed Khan will be taken to Trinidad and Tobago for DNA testing, according to Crime Chief Leslie James.
Family members of the businessman identified the headless and badly decomposed remains as that of Khan who was last seen sometime in late August when he traveled to Guyana.
The remains which discovered by cleaners who were working in the vicinity of the cemetery were taken to the Lyken Funeral Home and were later identified by relatives of the man even as the police maintain that they need to conduct tests to ascertain the true identity of the person.
Meanwhile, as it relates to the samples of Secondary School Teacher, Nyozi Goodman, James said that an officer from the Guyana Police Force has already been identified to travel to Trinidad to pick up the results.
The Crime Chief noted that he has been in contact with the mother of the missing school teacher, updating her on the investigation.
The unidentified remains of a female were found in Turkeyen, Greater Georgetown in July, and it is believed to be that of Goodman. 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 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.
On Friday last, the police shot a killed a suspect whom they identified as the main person in the disappearance of the Goodman and that of a police woman several years back.
