THE Scottburgh SAPS have registered an inquest docket to investigate the death of an unknown female whose skeletal remains were found near the Ifafa bridge on the N2 freeway.

Maintenance personnel were cutting the grass along the freeway at 8.30am on Wednesday, 12 August, when they discovered the skeleton lying in the freeway verge.

The victim was dressed in a dark- grey hooded jacket, grey skirt and light-brown ankle boots.

The skeleton was taken to the Park Rynie State mortuary where tissue samples were obtained for forensic DNA analysis with the view of identifying the deceased.

The case is being investigated by Warrant Officer Vis Moodley of the Scottburgh SAPS Detective Service. He appeals to anyone who may know of any female who may have gone missing recently, dressed in the clothing described, to contact him urgently on 039 978 1900. - Supplied
