CAPE TOWN - Bredasdorp police say the body of the man suspected of killing five-year-old Kayde Williams has been found hanging from a tree in a cemetery.

The young girl's body was found in bushes in the area on Monday, exactly two years after 17-year-old Anene Booysen was raped and left for dead in the same town.

It's understood Williams disappeared while walking to her grandmother's home last week Sunday.

It was revealed yesterday that she had also been raped.

Police further revealed the girl sustained severe head injuries.

The police's Maree Louw said, "He was reported missing on Monday after Kayde's body was found and he was a possible suspect."

Bredasdorp community members meanwhile held a march on Friday calling for action.

Williams will be laid to rest on Saturday.
