Woman’s body found in Lenasia veld

Johannesburg - The body of a 20-year-old woman was found by a passer-by in an open veld in Lenasia South, Johannesburg, on Wednesday, Gauteng police said.

"She was found with open wounds on her upper body and it appears as though she was stabbed with a sharp object," Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said.

The woman's cellphone was found still in her possession.

Her parents said they had last seen her on Tuesday night when she told them she was going to bed.

The motive for the killing was unknown and no arrests had been made.

she was not robbed if her cell phone is still at the body - so it might be the boy friend, husband, lover or maybe just a argument she had. there is 55 murders a day in SA, why not put all 55 everyday in the news? No disrespect and condolences to the family but news 24 lost the plot again. this must be rated the shortest article ever - a waist of time

What's wrong with this society of ours? I can only guess that it has something to do with the lack of publicly exposed consequences... fact!
