A 32-year old man was arrested at his home in Vosloorus for the murder of his girlfriend and mother of his 2-year old son. Captain Kay Makhubele said the man was arrested after collaborations between the police and community members.
The woman’s mother reported her missing on the 16th of January. “The woman left Alexandra on the 10th of January to visit her boyfriend. After she did not come back home, her boyfriend indicated that she left to [go] home but she did not arrive” Makhubele said.
Police followed up on information that led them to her car in Alberton. The person found in possession of the victim’s car led the police to the boyfriend who allegedly sold the car to him. Makhubele said the boyfriend admitted that he killed her and dumped her in an open space in Heidelberg. The body of a woman was found in an open field and a case of murder was opened.
He is expected to appear in the Germiston Magistate’s Court.
