Man under arrest for Karabo Mokoena murder as police work to identify body found a day after her disappearance

The body of a woman believed to be that of Karabo Mokoena was found on Saturday April 29‚ a day after she was reported missing‚ police said.

Mokoena’s family reported her missing on April 28 at the Diepkloof police station‚ Captain Mavela Masondo told TimesLive on Thursday.

“The following day‚ the body of a female was discovered in Lyndhurst at a park but police who discovered the body had no idea that it was the same person who was reported missing the previous day‚” said Masondo.

So as Karabo’s family and friends took to social media‚ asking for any leads on the missing young woman‚ she may already have died.

Police investigations between the Lyndhurst and Diepkloof police led to the arrest of a 27-year-old man believed to be Karabo’s boyfriend.
