Woman's charred body discovered in Mamelodi East
Police can't say at this stage if the latest murder can be linked to two other murders in the township.
JOHANNESBURG - Mamelodi East police have discovered the body of another woman this morning but can't say at this stage if the latest murder can be linked to two other murders in the township in recent weeks.
The woman's charred body was found inside a municipal bin at a dumpsite.
Yesterday, residents from the Marikana informal settlement in the east of the township went on the rampage, attacking a man they accused of being a serial killer.
Police had to call in reinforcements to quell tensions after the group also burned his shack and car.
Police spokesperson Neville Malila says detectives are investigating whether all three murders are linked.
"The evidence collected at the crime scenes were sent to the lab for analysis and we're still waiting for the results. Currently, there's no evidence that suggests the same perpetrator is responsible for the murders."
