Cape Town – Police are looking for a man whose girlfriend was found murdered and stashed under a bed in an informal settlement in Philippi, Cape Town.
Her body was found wrapped in a blanket in Sweet Home Farms informal settlement on Saturday, said Western Cape police spokesperson Captain Frederick van Wyk.
He said they were now looking for her boyfriend who could "help in the investigation" of the murder.
He was known by the names Blacks, Blessie and Thulani. He was believed to be a Zimbabwean national.
Van Wyk said the man had lived with the deceased and their two children.
The day before the body was discovered, he sold their furniture to a community member.
He took the children to their aunt and informed her he was going to work.
"The body was discovered by the victim’s mother when she went to look for clothing items for the children," Van Wyk said.
