Cape Town woman’s body found “cut in pieces” in her Bellville apartment

A 24-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the murder

A woman was found murdered at her apartment building in Bellville, Cape Town, on Thursday morning, Western Cape police confirmed.

The 32-year-old woman, who was identified as Lynette Volschenk by Netwerk24, was discovered around 11:00 after police were called.

Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana said officers conducted a preliminary investigation.

“… police found black bags containing [the] body of the deceased cut in pieces,” she said

Neighbours heard noises coming from the apartment on Wednesday night, but it was only when concerned colleagues investigated the next morning that they apparently caught a man with blue gloves inside the apartment, Netwerk24 reported.

Volschenk had last updated her Facebook status on Wednesday morning with a motivational poster bearing the Frida Kahlo quote: “At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can”.

Rwexana confirmed that a 24-year-old man was arrested and would appear in the Bellville Magistrate’s Court once charged.
