Woman found buried in shack
Johannesburg - The body of a woman was found buried inside her shack in Orange Farm, south of Johannesburg, police said on Thursday.
Emily Mofokeng, 28, was found at about 23:00 on Wednesday, Warrant Officer Kinnie Steyn said.
She had been missing since Sunday.
"After talking to the deceased's husband, concerned friends and residents searched the shack where the deceased lived with her husband and two children."
They noticed a suspicious heap of soil and started digging.
"The body of the deceased was found and it was clear that she had sustained bruises which could indicate the possibility of severe assault."
Police are now searching for her husband, Abia Amanpindela, 33.
"It is believed that he can be of assistance in the investigation," Steyn said.
