This follows the discovery of a lifeless body of a 45 year old Mookgo Joyce Mofokeng in her shack at Captain Charles; Bohlokong; Bethlehem.

The deceased who was last seen with her boyfriend on Sunday evening, was discovered by her neighbour who became worried when she didn’t see her the following morning.

According to the neighbour, her worries led her to the deceased’s shack which was not locked. Upon her arrival, she found Mookgo’s lifeless body and she immediately alerted the police.

The police are investigating a case of murder and a possibility of rape which could not be confirmed on the scene.

He said that even though the suspect was arrested, nothing justifies such unpleasant acts.
