No arrest in rape and murder

A 24-year-old woman’s body was found dumped in the mud in Ta En forest after she was raped and murdered in Thnort Chum commune’s Banteay Chas village, in Kampong Thom province’s Baray district, police said yesterday.

Srey Chansina, the deputy police chief in Baray district, said yesterday the corpse of the victim had been discovered in the forest on Wednesday, a day after she disappeared.

“On the basis of the expert doctor’s scrutiny and the police investigation, the victim was sexually assaulted before being thrown into the mud,” Chansina said, noting that the victim’s hands were tied and that the attack was especially “ferocious”.

“We will co-operate with the victim’s family to bring the suspect to justice after they have done the traditional funeral,” he said.
