Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has released a statement stating that some of the remains they retrieved were actually slain Murehwa boy Tapiwa Makore’s remains.
The remains were part of the several skulls that were recovered from Tapiwa Makore Senior’s toilet last December as ZRP intensified their search for the missing body parts.
In a statement released by ZRP, the police said they have notified Tapiwa Makore’s family of the results of the DNA:
