THE Namibian Police Force (Nampol) has discouraged the public from spreading fake news which results in panic, adding that currently there has been no information or evidence that suggests that there is a serial killer in Karibib.
The remarks come after the burial of six-year-old Andrian Myne Oswyn, whose dismembered body parts were discovered in a sewage dam on two different days in Karibib, after he went missing in early October.
Oswyn was laid to rest over the past weekend in Karibib after his body was returned to his family.
The Head of the Namibian Forensic Science Unit, Nelius Becker, said that the Namibian Police have conducted an autopsy examination and that they have found out the cause of death.
Becker, however, said that the police will not share the cause of death as it is an ongoing investigation. He further stated that leaked information might be used by the suspects in questioning stages of the investigation.
He added that the police have also conducted forensic investigations at certain residences in Karibib.
Head of the Criminal Investigations Division (CID) of the Namibian Police, Moritz !Naruseb, also said that at this point the Namibian Police cannot reveal what weapon was issued in the commissioning of the crime.
“After a month or two one can perhaps comment on it, but for now it is still sensitive. We are still busy collecting certain information and if it happens that we probably have to say certain issues here then perhaps information can be picked up by the others whom we are investigating,” !Naruseb said.
