Johannesburg - A woman was murdered and her body mutilated after being hijacked in the Lehurutshe area in the North West, police said on Monday.

Captain Aafje Botma said she was driving with a man on Saturday evening when they were attacked.

"Someone allegedly threw a stone at the vehicle, the driver stopped to investigate when he saw the attacker running towards them with a firearm.

"The attacker ordered the man to climb into the boot of the car. He got into the car and drove around with them."

The man managed to jump out of the boot of the moving vehicle while the attacker fled with the woman. He reported the incident to authorities.

On Sunday, police recovered the abandoned vehicle. The woman's body was found in bushes in the area.

"[She had ] two bullet wounds in her body, her right eye and private parts removed."

A case of hijacking, kidnapping, and murder was opened. No arrests had been made.

      Killing someone in this brutal barbaric way is not natural, we need to wake up an realize who is walking among us. For as long as man existed there have been wars, good against evil. Perhaps its that time again for the righteous to exterminate this dark evil force.

      art5SA - 2012-10-29 23:39

      FAAARK IT!!!!! When I read this, my blood boils!!!!!!

      luther.kingsley.5 - 2012-10-30 02:12

      lebeau.harper, If you want to understand why whites act this way then switch the roles... Imagine you are a black person and 99%!!! of the time when you see an extremely brutal hijacking, rape or murder of black people the perpetrators are always a group of white men.... This happens every week for 20 years and you will certainly form a very bad opinion about white people.... The onslaught is not coming from white people, and this is not my opinion, see the crime stats for yourself, one must be informed and know who and what you dealing with in order to remain safe.

      mable.jacobs.90 - 2012-10-30 07:35

      Maybe it's time the 'leaders' thought about bringing back the death penalty..Oh wait, they're highly protected and their families have lots of bodyguards, so they don't care...

      Nigel - 2012-10-30 07:37

      100% luther. The next step in this continual game of denial is they quote the demographic ratio, but without first studying the numbers. Even when you look at the ratio, Whites to Blacks, the numbers don't tally at all. We expected to accept that "crime is everywhere"; "crime is all over the world" etc etc and all the rest of the ignorant moronic excuses. Wise up idiots, there is something very wrong and evil with regards to the violence in SA crime, and it is very far removed from normal or acceptable.

      customdesign - 2012-10-30 08:04

      Lebauea- I don't see anywhere it being mentioned that she was white- Is it maybe that you share the same presupposition you are accusing the whites of?

      goeie.jaarling - 2012-10-30 09:50

      Auntie.lebo, please answer my questions, will the levels of crime be so high if the whole South African population was white and will there be so much poverty in Africa if the whole population was white? If the answer is no then there is something seriously wrong with your race. If your answer is yes you are lying to yourself. Africa's cause of all its problems is Africans.

      kirsten.a.foster.100 - 2012-10-30 10:29

      Goeie. You are an embarrassment! This has nothing to do with race but rather a population badly governed to the point that they use these divisive structures to keep the vote. You behave exactly how the media and govt. intends you to. Open your eyes man or move overseas. Aunty Lebo- while I'm sure his posts P1$$es you off, as it would me, saying this is not about race and then comparing it to previous "white" activities makes you a hypocrite.

      joe.soapie.73 - 2012-10-30 10:48

      // will the levels of crime be so high if the whole South African population was white and will there be so much poverty in Africa if the whole population was white? // It wouldn't make a difference. Turn the tables, 95% white people, 5% Africans in South Africa. The Africans are the successful minority, reaping the rewards from an unjust and unfair Apartheid. Whites on the other hand, are the majority but they are poor, illiterate, undereducated and starving. Yes, the crime will be just as high. Colour is utterly irrelevant. When your back is against a wall, you'll fight to survive any way you can. I cannot explain why some murder as they do; some are psychotic, while others are still smarting with hurt from Apartheid, bitter and very angry that despite the end of Apartheid the colour to class ratio really hasn't changed that much in almost 20 years. White man are still the dominant fiscal bringers to the country (open to correction). Some killers probably expected to be rich, to have a better life after ANC came to power; but 20 years on they and their families are still living in shacks some better off prior to Apartheid others worse off. There are many reasons why people kill as they do; but, as I've said, it has nothing to do with the individuals colour - it has to do with the individuals life experiences. Black skin doesn't make you a brutal sadistic killer. A killer is a product of his/her environment, situation and life experience.

      joe.soapie.73 - 2012-10-30 10:49

      I could also go on about why Africa is so poor; but all I will say on the matter that it's largely the fault of more powerful civilizations of the past - the European and Asian civilizations.

      goeie.jaarling - 2012-10-30 10:50

      @Kirstin.a.Foster, now tell me, who is governing Africa and who is voting for these wonderful leaders, oh wise one?

      auntie.lebo - 2012-10-30 12:17

      It may piss you off but that is the honest truth how can someone say if white people were the majority of the population they wouldn't be poor? Black people were robbed of their riches in the past and how can a country such as the uk also have high numbers of crime cases when the majority are white people quit putting yourselves on a pedestal.

      briana.scott - 2012-10-31 14:02

      I am sorry, It should not matter if she was white or not. The crime is just as heinous no matter what the race of the victim or the perpetrators.

  • SharonE - 2012-10-29 22:37

    I read this story on another website earlier, it is truly horrific. I am so sad for the tragic waste of life, and also for the barbaric way in which it was taken. Terrible...

      patson.nedzamba - 2012-10-30 08:00

      The man who did that is subhuman and he must not be covered by human rights. Find the mongrel and hand it to the masses.

  • sally.lewitt - 2012-10-29 22:39

    On dear God.. What is happening to the moral fibre in our country 'shudder' could of been any one of us :(

      sally.lewitt - 2012-10-30 02:24

      @ Klaus, possible perps..?

      gerrit.vanpletzen - 2012-10-30 03:59

      There is no moral compass in South Africa to speak of, any more. The leaders, who should be role models, are so ridden with corruption and greed, cannot show the way.

  • morwen.fourie - 2012-10-29 22:41

    Awful! Serial Killer. This takes hijacking to a new level.

  • alfred.neumann.142 - 2012-10-30 01:45

    Showerhead will tell us it's a "safe country" from behind the walls of his gazillion rand mansion with his team of bodyguards and his blindly loyal minions will tell us that it's just "regular crime". Another pathetically cowardly and pointless murder. For what?

  • Maxodin - 2012-10-30 03:23

    Please read this article several times mr Paul Harris. So it can sink in!!!!

  • charne.coetzer.35 - 2012-10-30 05:41

    Bring back the death penalty already!!!!! These criminals are getting fearless because they know they will get light sentences and spend a short while in Jail!

  • may.bee.988 - 2012-10-30 05:51

    OMW This country is a country of no hope!!! And they walk amonst us!! Bloody beasts!!

  • lulama.mbelwa - 2012-10-30 06:53

    What's with these gruesome killings taking place in our country??

      lorain.maseko - 2012-10-30 08:03

      Because people dont know what to do with democracy, the only time i would vote for the DA is if they promise to bring back the death penalty and do away wit some stupid technicalities in our criminal law,fact is if we have the death penalty there will be less violent crime.

  • kitneyi - 2012-10-30 07:11

    What the heck is happening to this country, sick, just sick!!!

    Ubuntu at its best - a total farce.

  • sean.baker.79827 - 2012-10-30 07:31

    i often think the death penalty needs to be brought back. However, I wonder with the death penatly and the ANC in power, if that might blow up in our faces. Imagine a friend or family member of yours get sent to jail for a murder he/she did not committ - a set up to cover up for one of their cronies, or just a useless judical system. They will be put to death. just a random thought - shudder thinking about it

  • khanyi.dlaminiduma - 2012-10-30 07:46

    Sad indeed, please investigste the partner...the boot was not locked? Seems as if the hijacker wanted him to escape.

      merven.halo - 2012-11-07 09:37

      Was thinking the same thing.

  • tony.naidoo - 2012-10-30 08:09

    Zoombie and the zombies! This is symptomatic of the current Safrican political and social climate. An African Spring is coming. A new, decent and accountable order will evolve! Down with the losers, down!

  • stuart.holder1 - 2012-10-30 08:23

    Said it before, will say it again. Get out if there people. Who wants to live in a country where life no longer has any value? I don't and won't.

  • scholesss - 2012-10-30 08:26

    i hope this guys could be found...be cut into pieces too...with razors, knives n so on. some people need to be thrown in lion's den..

  • auntie.lebo - 2012-10-30 08:41

    When he's found he should get life without any possibility of parole

      joe.soapie.73 - 2012-10-31 06:51

      More likely he'll get 6 months and R 1500 bail. :-/

      joe.soapie.73 - 2012-10-31 06:50

      Not that difficult (but not that easy either); it's possible to kick a boot open for example.

  • jacqueline.benjamin.52 - 2012-10-30 09:29
