Krugerdorp - A 20-year-old woman was found dead on a street in Swaneville near Krugersdorp, Gauteng police said on Thursday.

Warrant Officer Solomon Sibiya said a local resident called police on Wednesday, after the body of a woman was seen lying on a street.

“It had no visible injuries but was half-naked. The deceased's red Nokia cellphone was found next to her body. She was last seen by her family on the night of December 31 (2012).”

He said two months ago a body of a woman of the same age was also found strangled to death at Hospital View in Kagiso. - Sapa
