The body found on Monday at Cameron Road, Petite Valley, is that of 17 year old Renee T'Anna Lazarus, who left her Diego Martin home last Friday to go shopping in Port of Spain.
The girl had been strangled with bits of her own clothing, according to the results of a forensic examination done yesterday. Lazarus' hands and feet were tied before her killing.
Police suspect that a PH taxi driver in whose vehicle Lazarus was
returning home last Friday, has information about the murder.
