This is a follow-up report on the savage murder of a 17-year old school girl, who was found murdered and dismembered (arms chopped off) in her Pretoria home during March this year. See my previous post: -- We are living among savages.
I was wondering when the police were going to make an arrest in this case.
Details are still sketchy, but here is the latest news from Jacaranda FM:
By Phathu Musitha
Gauteng police this morning arrested a 21-year-old man in connection with the murder of 17-year-old Anika Smit who was brutally murdered in her Pretoria home earlier this year.
Police spokesperson Lungelo Dlamini says they followed up on information which eventually led to his arrest.
Dlamini says the suspect is expected to appear in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
He could not confirm reports that the suspect could be a security guard at The Carousel Casino in Hamanskraal, north of Pretoria.
Her father, Johan Smit, discovered her naked body during the afternoon of 10 March.
She had been assaulted and had stab marks on parts of her body. Her hands had also been chopped off.
The teenager had not gone to school that morning, because she was not feeling well due to an ear infection.
At the time of her murder, her father believed that the Grade 11 pupil at Hoerskool Gerrit Maritz knew her killer, as she would not let strangers into the house. Source: www.jacarandafm.co.za
