The police are suspecting that the headless body of a woman that was discovered near the railway line close to the Game shopping centre in Windhoek is that of the 29-year-old Elna-Marie Abbott who went missing this week.
This was confirmed by the spokesperson of the Namibian police Chief Inspector Kauna Shikwambi.
“We are still waiting for the report from the officers who attended to the scene. So far confirmation is the report for a discovered headless body which was received by the police this morning,” she said.
Earlier reports suggests that the body of Abbot, who was reported missing on Wednesday, was discovered by a train conductor who had alerted the police.
She was reportedly last seen driving a silver VW Golf 5 with registration number N27434WB.
South African singer Elizma Theron has also announced on Facebook this morning that her cousin’s headless body was discovered. She was related to the dead woman.
“Our hearts are broken. Elna-Marie’s body was found this morning. Her car is still gone, if you have any information please call the Namibian police. Thank you for everyone’s prayers and shares, it has helped a lot to find her,” Theron posted on Facebook.
