Burnt body car death find is 'not suspicious'
DYFED-POWYS Police have confirmed there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding the apparent death of Swansea student whose body was found dead in a burned-out car.
Moses Chabu's vehicle was found on the Cwm Gwaun Mountain Road, close to the village of Newport, Pembrokeshire, in October.
A memorial service for the 26-year-old, who was studying civil engineering at Trinity St David University Swansea, was held at St Joseph's Cathedral in Swansea on October 22.
Now a spokeswoman for Dyfed-Powys Police has confirmed their investigations into the death have been completed and that they aren't treating it as suspicious.
And despite the police being unable to confirm to the Post the identity of the man in the vehicle, Mr Chabu's family belive it was him.
His mother Astridah Mwami, told a Zambia-based TV channel she had to release her son's medical records to help identify the body found in the car.
"The police came to our house and they said they had found our son's car and they said the car was burnt out and there was a body inside," she said.
"They didn't know it was our son but it was likely that it was him because that was his car. They confirmed his registration number.
"They said the body was so badly burned so we couldn't identify him properly so they asked me to sign the consent form so they could have access to his medical records and dental records so they could maybe confirm it was Moses.
"The incident happened in West Wales. We don't know how he got there.
"He hasn't been answering his phone and he hasn't come back home — he was driving a VW Golf, that was the car they found, which was burned."
