Five months after remains were found in Santa Flora in December, an autopsy conducted today has confirmed that it is that of missing Freeport woman, Anita Mohammed.
The autopsy results were confirmed by an uncle of Mohammed and Head of Corporate Communications of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service, Ellen Lewis.
The remains were lying in a morgue at the Forensic Science Centre in St James since the badly decomposed body was found on at No. 9 Petrotrin Field Road near oil pump No. 481 in Santa Flora last December 28th.
Mohammed, 45, of Raphael Road, Freeport, went missing on December 20th.
She was last seen driving her black Toyota Hilux in Central Trinidad.
Police probing the woman’s disappearance were unable to positively identify the corpse when it was found eight days later.
Mohammed’s children were unable to positively identify her body at the Forensic Science Centre in December but they provided Mohammed’s dental records to police and investigators said the records would have been assessed by the forensic department.
The matter is being investigated by members of the Homicide Region Three.
