The investigation into the 2015 murder of 32-year-old Yana Auguste of Reduit, Gros-Islet is still active and the police are confident that they can solve the case, pending forensic analysis.
This was revealed by Superintendent of Police Andre Collymore at a press conference on Wednesday.
Collymore said the force is now awaiting forensic results that may lead to an arrest in the matter.
He said persons were interviewed and released following the incident, but there was not enough evidence to charge anyone at the time. However, Collyore said going forward the police is seeking to “conclude” the matter based on the completion of forensic analysis.
