Jane Doe not yet identified

The unknown woman whose decomposing corpse was found floating in the Quintal Lagoon on the Chan Chen Road on Tuesday last week, still has not been identified.

Police, who have begun an investigation said that four men were detained and interviewed, but were released from custody, and they are back to square one in the investigation.

Superintendent Andrew Ramirez, Commander of Corozal Police, said that the woman was in her twenties, was of dark complexion and her toes were painted with orange nail polish. She also had two silver crowns on her two front teeth.

He said that the woman was not killed in the area, and that her right hand was bitten off by crocodiles.

The corpse was buried in the Chan Chen Cemetery on Wednesday after the autopsy was conducted by Doctor Mario Estradabran, who certified that it was a chop in her head that caused her death.

Superintendent Ramirez urges anyone who has information about the incident, or who can identify the unknown woman, to visit the Corozal Police Station or any other police station.
