Northam -

A woman's half-naked body has been found in a river near Northam, North West police said on Tuesday.

It was found by youths fishing in the river on Monday morning, said Sergeant Philani Nkwalase.

“She was found only wearing a navy-blue, floral top and her legs and arms were tied with a plastic rope,” he said.

It appeared that the woman, who was thought to be aged between 25 and 30, was raped and strangled before her body was dumped in the river early on Monday.

Nkwalase said she was light in complexion and had shoulder-length black hair extensions. - Sapa
