THE POLICE in KwaZulu-Natal are investigating the gruesome murder of a 17-year-old girl.

The teenager’s body had been wrapped in a blanket and she had suffered several stab wounds.

According to the police, the teen’s body was found in a vehicle at the corner of Kingsway Road and Ocean View Road in Amanzimtoti, south of Durban, on Monday.

KZN police spokesperson Constable Thenjiswa Ngcobo said the victim suffered multiple stab wounds.

“Inside the vehicle were two men who claimed that they were rushing the deceased to hospital,” said Ngcobo.

No arrests had been made at this stage.

Earlier on Tuesday, KZN Social Development MEC Nonhlanhla Khoza expressed shock and outrage.

“According to reports received, the victim, believed to have been raped, was found deceased in a car, bearing stab wounds and her body wrapped in a blanket,” said the department in a statement.

“MEC Khoza has been inundated with calls from concerned community members, informing her about the horrifying scene and urging immediate intervention.

“Upon investigation, it was revealed that the father of the child was present in the vehicle alongside another individual when the discovery was made. It is believed that the father was rushing his daughter to hospital, but tragically she passed on along the way.”

MEC Khoza urged police to work around the clock to ensure that the alleged perpetrator are arrested.

“We strongly believe that the police will trace the perpetrator to ensure that he pays for his sins,” she said.
