CAPE TOWN - As the Bredasdorp community marks exactly two years since 17-year-old Anene Booysen was raped and left for dead, the body of missing five-year-old Kayde Williams, has been discovered in the town.

Booysen's killing sparked a national outcry as the shockingly high prevalence of violence against children was once again thrust into the spotlight.

Williams disappeared while walking to her grandmother's home on Sunday.

Her body was found in bushes in the area a short while ago.

The police's Maree Louw said, "She was found by two boys who were playing in the bush."

The most recent crime statistics show 35 sexual offences were reported at the Bredasdorp police station over the last year.
