THE BODY of a woman that was discovered on February 15 in Madiba Square has not yet been claimed by anyone.

The woman’s naked body was discovered in the veld behind the Northern Cape Legislature after residents saw a human arm being dragged around by a dog.

The body was found among some bushes in the overgrown veld by the K9 Search and Rescue team who were called to the scene.

It was confirmed that the arm belonged to the body.

The Galeshewe police appealed to the public to assist in identifying the family of the deceased by coming forward to report any missing person.

Police spokesperson Sergeant Timothy Sam said that DNA results have not been revealed yet.

Sam added that it would be helpful to take DNA samples of family members who report their relatives missing.

He also pointed out that it will minimise the backlog on DNA samples.

“It will assist the police to link the DNA, especially if the missing person has positive features of an unknown body,” said Sam.
