THE body of a young woman was found dumped near the Harry Gwala Stadium yesterday.

The woman, believed to be in her twenties, was clad only in a pink T-shirt and underwear, and her hands were bound behind her back with wire.

Inspector Joey Jeevan said the deceased had bruises around the neck, knees and upper body “indicating that she may have been dragged at some point”.

Police believe the woman may have been murdered elsewhere. She appears to have been strangled and may have been raped.

Police described her as being “of slender build, approximately 1,65 metres tall, dark in complexion with short, braided black hair”.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Senior Superintendent Chris Wiles on 033 845 7724 or 082 411 6559, or call Crime Stop toll free on 08600 10111.
