A Lumut police spokesman said yesterday the Pathology Department of the Ipoh Hospital confirmed that the bones from a leg and hand belonged to a woman whose identity had yet to be ascertained.
He said the hospital also revealed that the woman had died about 10 days prior to the gruesome discovery made by fisherman Chia Nai Huat and three others in Pulau Pangkor.
