CAPE TOWN - Western Cape police have arrested two people for murder following the discovery of a body in Groot Drakenstein.

The remains of an identified woman were found on a farm in Groot Drakenstein on Thursday.

The police’s Andre Traut says soon after the discovery, detectives followed leads.

“Investigations led the police to a residence where two male persons in their 20s were arrested on a charge of murder. The investigation is yet to be concluded.”

While authorities say it’s too soon to link them to the death of Zarah Hector, a Kuils River woman who went missing two weeks ago, her family is convinced the body found it is her.

The 33-year-old disappeared earlier this month when she left her workplace.
