Body found at Murray Barracks

The remains of a body have been found on a mountain in Murray Barracks.

Residents alerted police yesterday after noticing dogs scavenging on the body.

The clothes of the deceased identify it as a woman; however that needs to be confirmed by forensics.

Images supplied to the Loop PNG newsroom today, showed only the skull of the deceased.

Residents speculate that other body parts were taken away by dogs.

Despite that, the stench of a decaying body still surrounded the area where her whole body initially laid, indicating that this was a recent death.

Police visited the scene yesterday but have not removed the skull or gathered the bones.

Mixed stories of how she died have emerged but it is still uncertain with police yet to make any official statements into the case.
