Reports are that residents of Rio Bueno summoned the police after they saw a body floating in the river. The body was fished from the water and it was discovered that the throat had been slashed.
Residents of the relatively small town of Rio Bueno have so far been unable to identify the body of the woman.
Rio Bueno is situated in Trelawny, but on the border of the parish of St. Ann. This makes it tricky to solve murders as the person could be from either parish or the wider Jamaica and killed in either parish or anywhere else and brought to the sparsely populated area.
This comes almost a week after taxi driver Bruce Walters was beheaded in Hague.
