The Namibian Police Force has requested the help of the public to trace the next of kin of a 79-year-old woman who died during a vehicle accident which occured on the Omaruru to Uis gravel road on Wednesday.
According to the crime investigation coordinator for the Erongo region, deputy commissioner Erastus Iikuyu, the police could not trace the woman’s family as their efforts proved futile.
“The deceased was born in Germany but she was residing in Uis. The next of kin (daughters) who are believed to be in Germany are yet to be traced,” said Iikuyu.
A case of culpable homicide was opened by the police. It is alleged that the woman lost control over the vehicle about 7 km before Uis and the vehicle overturned. She passed away at the scene.
The body was taken to the Walvis Bay police mortuary for a post mortem examination. Police investigations continue.
