Homicide investigation opened after body found in Salmy desert

Seven-member family rescued from Ardhiya house fire

KUWAIT: Detectives are investigating the case of a woman whose body was found in the Salmy desert, while preliminary investigations indicate that she was killed. Detectives were unable to identify the victim since her fingerprint was not found in the database, which led them to believe that she could have either been a visitor or someone who stayed illegally in the country. A citizen had called police to report that he had found a dead body in the desert. The woman, believed to be in her thirties, was wearing pants and a shirt, with her throat slashed. The body was recovered by the coroner.
