The police are investigating two separate murders in the Atlantic Seaboard, after a tourist was killed in Camps Bay and a local hairdresser was murdered in Green Point.

The body of an American woman was found in a luxury boutique hotel in Camps Bay on Wednesday last week.

Her 41-year-old companion, from Guatemala, made a brief court appearance in connection with her death on Friday and is expected to apply for bail on Tuesday.

Gabriella Kabrins Alban (39), was staying in the Camps Bay Retreat during her visit from California.

The body of a 36-year-old Green Point hairdresser was found in his home on Thursday last week after he failed to arrive at work after a day off.

Peter Hasselman was reportedly stabbed with a sharp implement. No arrests have been made
