11th March 2009, Comments 0 comments

DNA test proves remains are that of a 41-year-old woman who went missing last year.

A DNA test has helped detectives to identify the remains recovered near the Brussels ring road in Wemmel (Flemish Brabant) two weeks ago. The remains are those of a 41-year-old woman who went missing in July of last year.

The woman was only 1.5 m tall.

The remains were discovered on 23 February when a man was looking for wood for his fire near the motorway exit to the VUB hospital in Jette (Brussels).

DNA recovered from the woman's tooth matches that of her children.

"No link with bin liner slaying"

The public prosecutor's office denied that there was any link with the body found in Oudergem (Brussels) on Monday.

Five bin liners were found to contain human remains.

Public prosecutors believe these are the remains of a 50-year-old man who went missing last week.

The bin liners were found along a path in a wood. The Federal Police are working on the case.
