Knysna-Plett Herald - - Crime -

The Knys­na de­tecti­ve branch is in­ves­ti­ga­ting a ca­se of mur­der fol­lo­wing the de­ath of a 22-y­e­a­rold Nek­kies re­si­dent, the se­cond mur­der in the a­rea in less than a month.

Knys­na po­li­ce spo­kes­per­son Ser­ge­ant Chris S­pies said the bo­dy of Si­noxo­lo N­ta­tum­ba was found with mul­ti­ple stab wounds on Sun­day, Au­gust 13 by a mem­ber of the pu­blic at a­bout 07:55.

He said the in­ves­ti­ga­ti­on had al­re­a­dy led to the ar­rest of an 18-y­e­ar-old sus­pect who ap­pea­red in the Knys­na Ma­gi­stra­te’s Court on Thursday, Au­gust 17.

“The sus­pect was re­le­a­sed on R2 000 bail, and the mat­ter was pos­t­po­ned until Sep­tem­ber 28 for furt­her in­ves­ti­ga­ti­on as it is still at an e­ar­ly sta­ge,” said S­pies.

* The first mur­der, in Nek­kies, was that of Ma­la­wi­an na­ti­o­nal Ed­ward Mk­hond­omt­sin­de, w­ho­se li­fe­less bo­dy was found on the si­de of the U­ni­on­da­le Ro­ad, ne­ar San­lam Mall on Ju­ly 31. A 32-y­e­ar-old sus­pect, Ga­vin Ts­hol­wa­na, re­mains in cus­to­dy until his next court ap­pea­ran­ce on Sep­tem­ber 7.
