Body found in dam

2011-05-13 12:54

The body of an 18-year-old woman reported missing was found floating in the Dutywa dam.

Eastern Cape police spokesperson Jackson Manatha today said the body of Namhla Booi was found by boys looking for cattle yesterday afternoon.

She did not have visible injuries, but police found vehicle tracks leading to the dam and believe the body could have been taken there.

As a result, they decided to investigate her death as a murder.

She had been missing from the Zundwana village since Sunday.

Anyone with information about the crime is urged to contact Dutywa police on 047 489 1333 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
