– dumped in creek near Emerald Tower Resort
Police are trying to ascertain the identity of a woman whose headless body was discovered yesterday in a suitcase near the Emerald Tower Resort at Madewini, off the Soesdyke/Linden Highway.
The fair-complexioned woman’s body was stuffed into a black briefcase, which was dumped into the Madewini Creek. A length of rope was wrapped around the body and the killer(s) had attached a heavy metal object to the other end of the rope in an effort to weigh the body down.
The victim was wearing a pair of black shorts and a multi-coloured top.
Detectives retrieved a passport (Number 0730108) bearing the name Teesa or Neesa Lalita Gopaul from the suitcase. A bank card was also found with the remains.
The gruesome find was made around noon by a family that had gone to the abandoned resort to swim in the Madewini Creek.
On reaching the creek, the family became aware of an unpleasant odour and observed the black suitcase in the water.
Suspecting the worst, they immediately summoned a male relative who was in the area. The man said that he poked the suitcase with a stick and saw what appeared to be part of a body protruding from it.
He then summoned the police.
The man and others suggested that the killer was familiar with the area and that he had taken his victim there by vehicle. The resort is about a mile off the highway and can only be accessed by a trail.
No blood was found at the crime scene.
Porters from the Lyken Funeral parlour eventually removed the body around 17:00 hrs.
On March 13, the decomposed remains of Alpha Hotel owner Rosaline Hall were found wrapped in a tarpaulin near the resort.
And last March, the body of 58-year-old Lambert Patrick Clarke was found along the Emerald Tower trail.
A post mortem revealed that he had died from natural causes.
