It is alleged that on Saturday, 10 February 2018 between 13:00- 14:00, the body of an unknown female (aged between 20-25 years) was found lying in a storm water drain in an open field in Zunga and Xabana Streets, NU5 in Motherwell. According to police information, a passer-by reported to police, who on arrival found the female, semi naked. Her head and face was covered with a plastic bag. It is further alleged that she may have been suffocated. A post mortem will be conducted to establish the exact cause of death and also to ascertain whether she was raped.
Crimes against women and children are serious especially when they have to succumb to such heinous torture therefore these perpetrators must be apprehended and sent prison
Police is appealing to anyone who can assist in their investigation or in identifying the victim to contact Detective/ Lt Col PJ Smit at SAPS Motherwell on 0824418121. All information will be treated as strictly confidential.
