Decomposing body found in bin - SANEWS


Johannesburg - The body of a 21-year-old woman was found in a rubbish bin in extension 24 of Jouberton, North West police said on Saturday.

“At this stage preliminary investigations reveal the cause of death as a blunt forced trauma to the head but we are waiting for the results from the autopsy to confirm this,” captain Amanda Funani said.

“Due to the warm conditions in the province the body had already started to decompose. It is alleged that the rubbish bin was hidden inside the house in a spare room where the victim was staying alone.”

Funani said the woman's mother tried to call her on Thursday night and could not get hold of her. On Friday the mother went to Jouberton and found the body of her daughter inside the rubbish bin.

“The mother and the neighbours searched the house and there was the smell coming out of the spare room,” she said.

A murder docket was opened and investigations continue, Funani added. - Sapa
