Meanwhile in Evaton police arrested a 22-year–old man for the murder of a 16-year-old girl on Monday. The suspect allegedly wanted to destroy evidence of the murder, as he was found with a heater and tyre, attempting to burn the shack where the incident happened.

Police spokesperson Aubrey Moopeloa said: “On arrival at the shack, there was smoke coming from the door of the shack where police obtained forced entry. Upon entering, the police found the lifeless body of a 16-year-old girl. Bloodstains were seen all over the floor and curtains. A tyre was found on top of a burning heater. We  suspect that the man wanted to burn the shack to avoid arrest.”

Both the suspects in the two cases have been arrested and charged with murder. Police appeal to the residents, especially men to refrain from solving problems in a form of murder.
