Condom found near slain girl


476

The body of a four-year-old girl was found in the bushes near her home in Monwabisi Park outside of Cape Town, according to a report on Wednesday.

A relative of the girl, Tutuse Mchilwa, told the Cape Times newspaper that he and a friend had found Aviwe Speelman's body on Tuesday.

“When I found her, she was lying there, her face was covered with her clothes,” Mchilwa said. “Her other t-shirt was next to her body with blood stains and a condom next to it.”

Speelman was reported missing by her parents on Monday. She had been strangled.

Family neighbour Linomtha Hokwana told the newspaper that Speelman was last seen playing with her two-year-old brother, Avuyile.

“It was past six when their father came home from work,” Hokwana said. “Within minutes Avuyile came to the house crying, saying a man took Avuyiwe to a nearby shop.”

Police spokesman November Filander said a murder case had been opened. Investigators would also determine whether Aviwe had been raped. - Sapa
