Police investigators are now reviewing the case of slain Post and Telecommunications Department employee Tandy Lewis to determine their next move.
Yesterday, the police revealed that DNA tests confirmed that the body found along the road to Port Royal in Kingston on October 17 was that of Lewis.
The 32-year-old Post and Telecommunications Department public relations officer was reported missing from her St Andrew home a day earlier.
Senior Superintendent of Police Derrick Knight, who heads the St Andrew Central Police Division, declined to discuss details of the case, but said the police would know their next move after a case review.
In a statement released days after the burnt body was discovered, the Constabulary Communication Network said a preliminary post-mortem had revealed that the victim was between 18 and 20 years old and was four months pregnant.
In seeking to explain what has now turned out to be an incorrect age assessment, Karl Angell, the director of communications for the JCF, pointed out that the post-mortem was done on a burnt body.
"It did suggest that it could be a person of younger age … . That is what the police got, and that's what we have to report," Angell said.
