Gulf Harbour body in bag: Police have dead woman's DNA profile

Police investigating the death of a woman who was found wrapped in plastic floating in Auckland’s harbour say her DNA does not match any of their records. 

A fisherman found the woman’s body in the water at Gulf Harbour last Tuesday. 

Police have not been able to identify her, but released details of her appearance in the hopes of eliciting information from the public. 

Police believed she was Chinese. She was wearing patterned pyjama pants and a Chinese-branded singlet when she was found. She was about 160cm tall. 

Acting Detective Inspector Tim Williams said police are working with international police agencies as part of their investigation, including Interpol. 

Williams hoped the fact her DNA did not match police records in New Zealand would “assist us in finding out the identity of this victim”.
