Chanelle’s body was discovered on the banks of the Vygieskraal River by her grandmother, who then alerted neighbours. They alerted authorities.
Last week, McCrawl said she was finding it difficult to come to terms with losing her only daughter.
“I went to see her body today and that was the hard part. The way she looked she is not happy. Her mouth was still open and she just didn’t look happy. Her neck was broken and they said she was raped.
“She was supposed to go to school Thursday, but she never made it there. The last time I saw her was when she was getting ready for school.”
