    Case History

    On Monday 20th September 2004, the body of a woman was found in Horton-In-Ribblesdale in North Yorkshire, close to the Pennine Way.

    She was partially clothed and her body had decomposed after being in the water for several weeks. There were no injuries on her body to indicate a traumatic death.

    Anthropologists, entomologists and orthodontists are confident she originates from Thailand. Officers have contacted a number of foreign embassies. Extensive searches have been made in the Sell Pot cave area and house-to-house visits have been carried out in Horton-in-Ribblesdale. Walkers on the Pennine Way have also been quizzed.
