AVOCA – The decomposing body of a 21-year-old woman was found near Mathern Road on Saturday, January 28.
Greenwood Park visible policing members were called to the scene by concerned community members who reported a bad smell in the area. “After searching through the bush, the members found the body,” said Colonel Thulani Zwane, provincial spokesperson for the SAPS.
This startling discovery recalls the decomposed body found in Avoca last year when a man was found dead in the kitchen of his home.
“A case of Murder has been opened and our detectives are appealing to the community to come forward with information,” said Greenwood communications officer for the SAPS, Warrent Officer Leon Audh.
