Possible evidence found in woman’s death

Police experts are analysing clothes and other items found in a bag yesterday morning near where the naked body of a dead woman was found in early June, police officials said yesterday.

Deputy police chief Chuon Narin said the items may have belonged to the victim, who was found wrapped in a blanket with a cord around her neck at a Dangkor district dumpsite on June 4.

“The items are being examined by the post-mortem team according to their protocols” he said.

Documents, female clothes, photos and identification cards were found in a large bin bag by a scrap collector about 50 metres away from where the body was found, Dangkor district police chief Yim Saran said.

“Police are verifying the fingerprint on the ID card with the victim’s fingerprint, but we don’t know if there is a match yet,” he said.

The ID card found was that of a woman named Im Sovanny, born 1986 and a resident of Kandal province’s Kien Svay district, he added.

Soon after the body was found on June 4, a woman named Han Sina emerged, with her family identifying the dead girl as their daughter, 21-year-old Mao Napha.

Napha allegedly worked at a garment factory and lived with her husband in Dangkor district before going missing on June 3.

Despite the claim, police could not match a thumbprint of Napha with the thumbprint of the deceased woman, and cremated the body.
