The police in Oshana, acting on a tip-off, recently made a gruesome discovery of human remains at Ombonde ya Shivolo cattle post in Uuvidhiya Constituency.
The grisly remains were discovered after the police were tipped off about the skeletal remains in a hole in the ground at a cattle post. According to the police source, a team was immediately dispatched to the area to investigate.
“Some bone was outside the burrow. We also found a belt and a cloth suspected to be a trouser with the remains,” said a police source. The remains are being kept at the police mortuary at Oshakati Police Station.
So far the remains have not yet been identified, as they are yet to be sent for DNA analysis. The age and the day the act was committed remains unknown, pending the DNA results, but it is suspected the person might have been working at a cattle post in the area.
No arrests have been made in connection with the find. Investigations continue.
