Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA) received a call from the passerby at approximately 13:58. On arrival, Reaction Officers and RUSA Medics were led to a bush where the female was located lying in a prone position.
Her top was found around her waist and her jeans were pulled down. The deceased appears to be in her twenties. She sustained a stab wound to the right side of her chest and blunt force trauma to her face and is believed to have been raped.
