The decomposed body found in a ravine at Halton Plantation, St Philip over a week ago has been confirmed as that of missing woman Marcelle Smith.
Acting Police Commissioner In Charge of Crime Livingstone Eversley told Barbados TODAY that a post mortem conducted today confirmed the identity of the 75-year-old, Farm Road, St Philip woman, who went missing three weeks ago.
However, lawmen are tightlipped on other results of the autopsy at this time, as the family has not yet been informed.
Smith’s car was found abandoned at Chelston Park, Culloden Road on October 18.
Police have since charged Cheriss Ricardo Omar Ince of Nursery #2, Four Roads, St Philip with theft of the vehicle.
