The body of a 34-year-old woman was found dumped in the veld in Clarkbury, Eastern Cape, police said today.

Police spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Mzukisi Fatyela said the body was discovered by people who were on their way to work this morning.

Fatyela said her body had several wounds indicating that she was stabbed before being dumped in the undergrowth.

“We are investigating in order to check if her killers did not rape her. At the moment we cannot divulge the name of the woman because we have not yet located her family,” said Fatyela.

Fatyela has urged anyone with information concerning the matter to contact their nearest police station.
