KwaZulu-Natal police are looking for the family of a woman whose body has been left unclaimed at the government mortuary in Richards Bay for the past five months.
Police said yesterday they had identified the woman as Tsitsihar Pinedale Nxumalo after fingerprints were verified by forensic laboratory experts.
Police spokesman Captain Jabulani Mdletshe said the woman was aged between 20 and 25.
The body was found by locals at KwaMbonambi in February. She had been shot dead.
We asked traditional leaders to assist since the laboratory report indicated that she was a local person," Ndaba said.
Anyone with information can call Ndaba on 035-580-1222 or 082-411-6692.
