Dubai Police have solved the mysterious case of a headless woman found near University Road in Al Warqa in May.

The woman has been identified as Manormeeta Salwaro Dadi, a national of the Philippines who was employed as a maid. According to officials, she had absconded from her sponsor seven days before her death.

Police managed to identify the woman despite the fact that her torso was discovered with no head, hands or legs. To do so, investigators checked into 9,750 absconded maids and conducted a DNA test.

The murderer has been identified as Glin Ambro, a relative of hers, who stabbed her in Abu Dhabi's Musaffah and stole Dh 10,000.

After cutting off her legs, hands and head in his home, he rented a car and took them to Dubai and to Ajman, where he set fire to the body parts in a deserted area. He then returned to his apartment and dumped his crime tools in the garbage.

Additionally, police noticed that the culprit was employed as a butcher and that his cutting was "very professional".

Police, however, managed to identify the murderer, who was reportedly "stunned" that he was caught.

In June, police reached out to the public for assistance to help identify the woman, and circulated pictures of the abaya and green pants that they discovered along with her remains.
