The body found on the beach at Fullerton Village in Cedros last Thursday is that of Pandroutee Sinanan, the 55 year old Tunapuna woman who had been reported missing.
Sinanan, of First Street, Maingot Road, was last seen at around 6:20a.m on Monday close to her home.
Her body was identified by her sister on Friday
An autopsy was performed by Dr Hughvon Des Vignes at the Forensic Science Centre in St James, but a cause of death could not be determined.
Des Vignes was able to establish that the cause of death was unnatural, but was unable to state what caused Sinanan’s death due to the advanced state of decomposition.
Sinanan was a member of the administrative team of SITAL College, Eastern Main Road in Tacarigua.
She was last seen dressed for work.
When she disappeared, friends and family launched an appeal for help in finding her.
No one knows how her body ended up washed up on the beach.
Police say it appears Sinanan died soon after she went missing.
