Murder: Woman’s body found in bushes

2010-07-01 00:00

A 75-YEAR-OLD woman was found murdered last Friday morning near Orange Rocks, at St Michael’s on the south coast.

Police spokesperson Colonel Jay Naicker confirmed that Margate police found the body of June Wallis in the bushes next to a path. There were signs that she had been raped.

It is alleged that Wallis was walking her three dogs, as she did daily, when she was murdered.

According to Naicker, another dog walker heard a dog barking in the bush and found a small dog, apparently one of Wallis’s, barking at her body.

The woman summoned the police.

“The deceased’s body was partially dressed and it would appear that she was strangled and raped.”

The criminal record centre combed the scene for forensic evidence, but no arrests have been made.
