[] – The samples of the decomposed remains of a female which were discovered at Turkeyen, Greater Georgetown in July and which are suspected to be that of missing school teacher Nyozi Goodman left Guyana for testing overseas yesterday [Thursday, August 21].

Crime Chief, Leslie James confirmed this but would not say which country the samples were sent to.

The samples left early yesterday even as the majority of the remains lay in cold storage at a city funeral parlour. This is even as the mother of Goodman had indicated that the remains are that of her child, after she was able to confirm that an underwear and belt spotted near the remains were that of her daughter.

In the past, the Guyana Police Force came in for harsh criticism by both the Minister of Home Affairs, Clement Rohee and President Donald Ramotar for the samples of Sheema Mangar which were sent to a Caribbean country for DNA testing and to this date has not been returned.
