CAPE TOWN - Police have released the identikit of a possible suspect in the murder of Eastern Cape teacher Jayde Panayiotou.

Panayiotou was killed last week after she was abducted outside her Port Elizabeth home.

Police have asked for the public's assistance in tracking down teacher Panayiotou's killers.

Authorities are hopeful the release of an identikit, of a bearded man wearing a cap, will help in the investigation.

The popular Riebeek College Girls' High School teacher was abducted outside her home in Port Elizabeth while she was waiting for a lift to work last Tuesday morning.

Her body was found the following day near KwaNobuhle in Uitenhage.
