National search on to identify woman

SVAY Rieng provincial police have launched a nationwide search to find the identity of a woman whose beaten body was discovered in a shallow pond in Svay Rieng’s Bavet town on Friday.

Mao Phin Phirum, the police chief of Bavet commune, said yesterday that officials had estimated that the woman, thought to be in her 20s, had been dead for about 10 days before her body was discovered swollen and unrecognisable.

“The dead woman was packaged in a sack and thrown into the pond,” he said, adding that the sack had been weighed down with a stone.

He said nothing that could help identify the woman had been found with her body and that police had widened their search after learning that no one had reported any family members missing from Bavet town.

“We suspected that the deceased was killed at another area and the suspects took her dead to throw her in the pond in our area,” he said.

He said police would also search for the woman’s killer, but had not identified any suspects so far
