De Freitas also said that the forensic laboratory identified the partially decomposed body as Sasha’s on Friday.
The senior police officer explained that the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) had already started a homicide investigation while it awaited identity confirmation.
Relatives reported that they last saw Sasha on July 17 when she left to attend a barbecue.
They filed a missing person’s report with the police after she failed to return home and efforts to contact her were unsuccessful.
