Knysna police said an autopsy would be conducted on Wednesday to determine the cause of death of a 28-year-old woman.

Her body was discovered among the bushes at the Coney Glen viewpoint in Knysna on Tuesday.

The identity of the woman was withheld.

The woman’s mother reported her missing at noon on Tuesday and four hours later, after a massive land and sea search, her body was found.

She was last seen alive on Monday at her place of work but it was still unclear what the motive behind the killing was.

The police’s Malcom Poje said the victim’s parents were at the police station to identify the body.
