On Monday morning passers-by made the grisly discovery of the mutilated body of 19-year-old Snegugu Linda in a pathway at Woody Glen, near Hammarsdale in Durban.
IOL reports that her heart was ripped out and parts of her digestive system was found laying next to her corpse. Her mouth was covered with what seemed to have been a doek. The Daily Sun added that Linda also sustained multiple stab wounds to the back and stomach area.
Londiwe Linda, the victim’s 33-year-old mother, told IOL that when she last saw her daughter about two weeks ago, she noticed that her daughter had a stab wound on her hand. Snegugu told her mother that her boyfriend had stabbed her.
It is suspected that she was pregnant.
A distraught and shaken resident of Woody glen, who asked to remain anonymous, told The Daily Sun that if she had been killed in the pathway, they would have heard something. It is thus suspected that Linda was killed elsewhere and her body was then dumped.
The Daily Sun further reports that the victim left her home about two weeks ago to visit her boyfriend and was expected to return home on Sunday 15 November. It is suspected that she was pregnant.
KZN Police Spokeswoman Captain Nqobile Gwala said Mpumalanga SAPS are investigating a case of murder.
