However, the concerned herdsmen quickly alerted their colleagues with alarms which attracted among otherrs by-passers to the scene from the surrounding villages.
They asserted that the woman could have been murdered elsewhere and her body dumped at the grazing area by unknown assailants.
Frank Tumwesigye, the Police Commandant-Napak district confirms that the remains are of a woman. He explains that woman was found dead and most of her body missing purportedly mauled by hyenas. He does not rule out the possibility that the remains could be one of the several missing person cases being handled by security agencies in Napak adding that no complaint has been filed across the police posts in the district. He notes that investigations are being carried out by the police to establish the killers and their motive.
This is the second woman to be found dead in a spate of seven days after one was found dead near Matany trading centre.
