Woman’s remains discovered

An ethnic Jarai woman was found murdered in Ratanakkiri on Wednesday, police said, with the circumstances surrounding her death still murky.

Rocham Vin, chief of O’Yadav district’s Yatung commune, said yesterday that 50-year-old Rocham Vil, who is also his cousin, was found on Wednesday.

She was found some 50 metres away from a hut where her shoes had been left.

“The body was half naked … and there were marks on her neck. We do not know why she was murdered, because she had no problems with anyone else,” Vin said.

An autopsy yesterday established that the woman’s neck had been broken, and one of her copper teeth had been broken off, district police chief Ma Vichet sad.

“The suspect had undressed the victim. But the suspect did not rape her,” Vichet said.

He added that three people had thus far been questioned.
