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.
