DNA test on the 2 suspects of the Kotadeniyawa murder
A DNA test was carried out today on the two suspects of the Kotadeniyawa child murder including the 17-year old school student.
The test done by the Chief Judicial Medical Officer of the Negombo hospital is expected to ascertain whether there are any links between the odd particles found on the girl’s body and the suspects.
In addition, the Judicial Medical Officer has inspected wounds including scratches on the two suspects.
Later the two suspects were taken to Negombo prison as they have been remanded until September 28th.
At the same time, a senior police officer told our news team that police have drawn attention to the strangers who visited the area before the girl was reported missing.
A separate investigation has also been initiated on the obscene photographs found on the laptop of the 17 year old suspect.
