In a marathon investigation that started in 2017 with the disappearance of a young teacher from Da Gamaskop in the Southern Cape, the probe by a Western Cape detective has lifted the lid to several other unsolved murders in various parts of the province.
In December 2017 the body of the teacher was found in her home. At the time, evidence could not link no one to the murder. Unrelenting effort by the investigator, through DNA analyses has led to the arrest of a 32-year-old suspect who is Zimbabwean and allegedly linked to the murder. The arrest of the suspect on 09 February 2019 for the Murder of the deceased teacher has led the investigation to about four other murders, some in the Boland-towns such as Wolseley, Worcester, Swellendam and De Doorns.
The investigation continuous in an effort to solve other murders that remains unsolved with new leads being followed subsequent to the arrest of the accused.
