Three people were taken in for questioning after a 21-year-old woman’s body was found in Browns Farm, Philippi, Western Cape police said on Monday.

Police found the dead woman lying on her stomach in Woodbaai on Sunday morning, said Constable Noloyiso Rwexana.

“It is suspected that she was raped and strangled, as there were no visible injuries.”

Two men and a woman, aged between 24 and 38, were taken in for questioning as they were last seen drinking with the deceased.

. Meanwhile police arrested two ex-police members who were previously stationed at Harare SAPS.

The duo apparently took a bribe and let a suspect go uncharged.
