NC woman’s body found in graveyard

The Police in the Northern Cape have launched a manhunt after the body of a 27-year-old woman was found at Rosedale outside Upington.

Police spokesperson, Mohale Ramatseba, says the body of the 27-year-old woman was discovered on Thursday at the Morning Glory Graveyard by a passer-by who then alerted the police. Ramatseba says preliminary investigations show that the victim might have been sexually assaulted and strangled. He says no arrests have yet been made and are appealing to anyone who might have information to come forward.

Ramatseba adds that the police are looking for Niklaas van Wyk who could possibly assist the police with investigations. He could, however, at this stage not confirm to OFM News whether Van Wyk was an eye witness, a suspect or a family relative.

“Anyone with information is kindly requested to contact Detective Sergeant Jacobus Albertus Visagie of Rosedale Detectives on 079-850-7790. All information will be treated with the strictest confidence” said Ramatseba.
