Johannesburg – A woman found murdered in Verdwaal near Itsoseng has been identified, North West police said on Wednesday.

Captain Amanda Funani identified her as Katlego Molefe, 21, from Biretsane near Atamelang.

Her body was found on Monday by a passerby in a field near Verdwaal. She had been hit with an unknown object on the head.

Funani said Molefe was visiting her relatives in Verdwaal.

She was last seen on Sunday when she told them she was going to spend the night with her boyfriend in Verdwaal.

Her grandfather identified her on Tuesday.

Funani said the police questioned her boyfriend in connection with her murder but released him on Wednesday.

“He (boyfriend) is not linked to the murder. He was the last person seen with the deceased,” she said. – Sapa
