Body Parts in Koh Tao do not belong to missing Russian Woman

The five objects believed to have been human body parts, found by search and rescue divers on Koh Tao, do not match the DNA of the missing Russian woman Valentina Novozhyonova who went missing on February 15th.

 

All of the recovered objects as well as a T-shirt thought to belong to the girl were sent for DNA testing at the Institute of Forensic Science of the Royal Thai Police, however tests revealed the flesh was not human and DNA taken from the clothing did not match the missing woman. The revelation that the objects are animal remains is in direct contrast to earlier media reports that said they were part of a human hip and arm.

 

Police are now holding meetings to discuss the next steps in the search. They also wish to question a friend of the missing woman who is due to return to Koh Tao from the Philippines next week.

 

The mother of the missing woman has now arrived on the island.

The quickest DNA testers in the world!

I thought they always need Singapore for dna-tests since Thai can't do it properly?

Oh gawd, don't send them there! Stevie Wonder would do a better job.

DNA testing completed overnight and give a negative result for the missing person.

Quite impossible for testing to be fractionally completed in this time frame....but for the RTP, they did it and of course, now, there is no body, and probably in their pin brains, no further criminal investigation needed...for now!

Remains found in sea at Koh Tao "animal not human" says governor

The bone and flesh parts found in the sea off Koh Tao are not human, initial tests indicate.

The parts were taken by helicopter to a police testing facility in Surat Thani where the initial observations showed they were not connected to missing Russian woman Valentina Novozhyonova.

As divers continued to search the bay where she is thought to have gone, police are now waiting for the return to Thailand of her "dive buddy". He is a Russian national who is presently in the Philippines, reported Daily News.

Testing of an item of clothing for DNA is also currently taking place.

Dive teams from Koh Tao Resort were scouring a 400 meter section of the bay yesterday. A blue snorkel was found and some more cloth but these are old and not thought to be connected to the inquiry.

Koh Tao police said that all options remain open in the enquiry - they have not ruled out crime, accident or that Valentina has simply gone missing somewhere and might still be alive.

Though they said yesterday that with 23 days passed since she was last seen that last possibility is fading.

Apichart Bunsrirot, the governor of Surat, confirmed Friday that initial tests showed that bone and flesh found earlier was of animal origin and was not human. DNA testing on a singlet is still ongoing and inconclusive.

A mask was also taken for testing to the mainland but has proved to be of little help.

A preliminary test to indicate if the remains are human can be done easily with 24 hrs actually.

Its' likely that the forensic scientists would know decomposed human flesh (and that of other animals) fairly quickly. They would have seen enough of it. Especially if bone tissue was found.

Would using a drone fitted with an infrared cam  be useful for detecting shallow graves in the evening when the ground temp has lowered?  morbid thought  I know, but the whole scenario seems to be turning that way.

The dna results reported in the Nation at 18:30 yesterday (10th March)
