    Like I said, they'll do either DNA tests or use dental records for positive identification, but, in cases such as this, they normally will allow families of missing people to examine recovered jewelry or possessions, as it will give them some closure before the definitive tests have been run.
    See my post above. It gives no closure.

    In the absence of a positive visual ID by next of kin/their representative, they need to conduct 2 tests of forensic ID. That's what's taking so long.

    Totally agree with you. I can't believe the found loads of evidence in a few days time. In the US, it took them a bit longer, but at least the US found evidence for their attacks though.
