The body of a woman has been found in a shallow grave on the Cape Flats. The find comes barely two weeks after the bodies of two teenage girls were discovered in Mitchells Plain and Lavender Hill.
Police Spokesperson Andre Traut her body was found in Olympic Avenue‚ Grassy Park.
“The circumstances surrounding the matter are currently under investigation and no one has been arrested as yet” said Traut. The mother of two went missing last Thursday and she was found on Sunday by neighbourhood watch members. Grassy Park Community Police Forum‚ Phillip Bam‚ called for increased police visibility.
“The police are chasing stats all the time instead of chasing criminals. Police should be proactive‚ there should be more prevention of crime than reactive policing‚” said Bam. While police did not reveal her name‚ the Daily Voice identified her as Abenise Bowes.
Her friend Adri Adams took to Facebook to express their sadness: “My dearest friend all i want is to see you for one last time i want to hear your voice that laughter and that beautiful smile”. Deidre Didi Alexander said:”Soo sad to hear of the passing of Abenise Bowes. May her soul find eternal rest. Rip Abby”.
