Decomposed body in flat identified four months later after fingerprint and DNA methods prove inconclusive

In a poignant revelation, a 66-year-old woman, living solo in a Teban Gardens flat, was discovered deceased in her kitchen toilet on 23 April this year.

Advanced decomposition obscured her identity. The coroner’s court revealed her identity on Monday (14 Aug) based on circumstantial evidence, after extensive investigation yielded no clarity from fingerprints, DNA, or dental records.
