DNA test awaited on body


POLICE are waiting for the DNA results to confirm the identity of the burnt body found in a gutted car at Diep River station.

Police are still investigat­ing the missing person’s case of 57-year-old Constantia mother Gill Packham.

According to the Pink Ladies Facebook post Packham left her home in Constantia at 7am on Thursday for her place of work at Springfiel­d Convent School, but did not arrive there.

She was driving a dark green BMW.

Police spokespers­on Lieutenant-Colonel Andre Traut said there were no new developmen­ts in the case. Police were still investigat­ing.

He said they were not linking the two incidents – of missing Packham and the burnt body – at this stage.

He said both incidents were being investigat­ed separately. They were waiting for the DNA results to identify the burnt body.

He could not confirm when these results would be forthcomin­g.
