The Bredasdorp community and other organisations have now joined hands in a bid to put the spotlight on women abuse. Watch. WATCH

Cape Town - The body of a 19-year-old Cape Town teenager was found in a neighbour's flat in Kraaifontein on Saturday, as the funeral for murdered teenager Anene Booysen was under way in Bredasdorp.

The Cape Times reported on Monday that the decomposing body of Ge-Audrey Green was found in the drawer under a bed. A 21-year-old man, who was known to her and her family, has been arrested as a suspect.

Police believe she was raped and then strangled, but the results of a post-mortem have not yet been released.

The suspect's parents live in the flat, but were not at home at the time of the alleged crime. His mother called the police when they returned home on Saturday and discovered Green's body.

Green was last seen on Wednesday and the alarm was raised when she failed to return home on Thursday.

A prayer service was held at Green's home on Sunday. Western Cape MEC for Community Safety, Dan Plato, attended the service.

Her aunt, Ronette Green, said the suspect had been good friends with her.

"The mother is emotional. She wants to know what happened to her daughter. She wants to know why [she was] killed.

"I can’t imagine how she looked. Even the policeman who came here to tell us said it was not a pretty face to see. I could see from the hurt in his eyes that it was bad.

“This must stop. We see these things happen every weekend,” Green told the newspaper.
