The building in which the body was discovered has been unfinished for more than six years, one neighbour related.

Although the yard in which the building is situated has a hut to accommodate the caretaker Stabroek News understands that he only goes there on occasion. The gate to the yard though, is said to be usually locked. It is therefore uncertain how the woman gained access to the building.

Of the residents Stabroek News spoke to none could recall ever seeing the woman. Up to press time last evening her body remained unidentified. Further, the building’s caretaker remained in police custody up to yesterday afternoon assisiting with the investigation.
