Forensic psychology students at Abertay University today assisted Norfolk police and Police Scotland with an ongoing murder probe.
The case dates back more than 40 years and relates to the headless body of a woman found in Norfolk in 1974. Detectives down south believe the City of Discovery could hold the answer, as revealed by the Tele back in January.
When discovered, her body was found wrapped in a plastic sheet from National Cash Registers, which was based in Dundee, was clothed in a pink Marks and Spencer’s nightdress and badly decomposed.
Her hands were bound with an unusual piece of string, and Dundee has been identified as the only place in the world where this type of rope was manufactured.
Despite DNA samples being taken from her body after it was exhumed in 2008, her identity remains a mystery, and the police are following up every lead in an attempt to find out who she was, which is what has brought them to the City of Discovery.
The students are carrying out a review of media coverage from the city between 1973 and 1975 in Dundee Central Library.
