The body of a woman who went missing in Paarl almost a month ago has been found in a shallow grave in the backyard of her boyfriend’s house.
Nicola Pienaar‚ 28‚ was reported missing by her psychologist mother‚ Marlaine Pienaar-Vice‚ on January 8.
Her boyfriend of almost a year‚ Jacobus Oosthuizen‚ 32‚ also from Paarl‚ was later arrested in Port Elizabeth on a charge of theft of a motor vehicle after he was found sleeping in the gold Peugeot belonging to Pienaar-Vice.
Oosthuizen told police at the time that he and Pienaar had a fight and that he then dropped her off in Oudtshoorn.
“There is not much to say anymore. I just want to know why he [allegedly] did it. He must tell me now‚” said a devastated Pienaar-Vice.
“I have taken a tranquiliser so I am numb…I’m feeling numb and my psychologist friend is taking good care of me. I am now waiting for the police to come and see me.”
Further details of Pienaar’s death have not yet been released.
