WINDHOEK, 07 JAN (NAMPA) - No new information is yet available from the Namibian Police Force (NamPol) regarding the two charred bodies found early Thursday on the western outskirts of Windhoek.
This was made known during a telephonic interview Thursday afternoon with NamPol Spokesperson from the Public Relations Department, Chief Inspector Kauna Shikwambi.
The two female bodies were found around 06h30 by a security guard at the garden refuse and building disposal site behind Pionierspark and just off the Western Bypass. The guard went to investigate the source of smoke coming from that area as no rubbish is supposed to be set alight at that dumpsite. Upon investigation, the guard stumbled upon the gruesome scene of two bodies, still smouldering.
When Nampa visited the scene at around 11h00 Thursday, scores of police officers of the Serious Crime Unit were combing the site for clues to assist them in the investigation. Although the bodies had been moved to the Police Mortuary, the remains of the materials used to burn the bodies were still visible.
Shikwambi said deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) tests will be done to identify the two victims. She called on the public to assist the police by reporting any missing friends, family members or relatives as this might contribute to their investigation.
