Police wary of woman’s claim

A woman from Takeo province has claimed she is the mother of the woman whose body was found at a dumpsite in Phnom Penh’s Dangkor district on Tuesday.

Han Sina, 38, from Takeo’s Tram Kak district, travelled to the capital yesterday with her family to identify the body, said Yem Saran, Dangkor district police chief.

The body was found naked two days ago with a rope around its throat, and police suspect foul  play as there were visible injuries on the corpse.

Sina requested the body be turned over to her so she could arrange the appropriate funeral rites, but because the body’s thumbprint did not match that of Sina’s daughter, 21-year-old Moa Napa, police refused, Saran said.

“We cannot give the body to her because the thumb print is different,” he added. “We have decided to cremate the body even though Napa’s father, mother, siblings and aunt have said it was her.”

According to Saran, Sina claims her daughter – who was a garment factory worker – had lived with her husband in Dangkor district and went missing on Monday.
