By BBN Staff: Belmopan school teacher Pamela Lino is still officially missing, though there is growing speculation that it is her burnt corpse that was found in the back seat of her Kia Sportage found last Tuesday near Mile 22 on the George Price highway engulfed in flames.
The vehicle was involved in a high speed chase after it made abrupt U-turn just before the Hattieville checkpoint that morning.
Since then, however, police have not been able to confirm whether or not it was Lino’s body in the vehicle because Belize doesn’t have forensic capabilities.
According to reports from police, the DNA samples of the body has been sent abroad for testing . Police also got DNA samples from Lino’s family to compare and confirm if it was Lino’s body inside her vehicle.
The results will take about three to six months to return.
