Private Security guard raped and murdered at Glen Valley ponds

Broadhurst police station has launched an investigation into an incident in which a private security guard was raped and murdered at Glen Valley sewage ponds recently. The motive behind her murder has not yet been established as the assailants are still at large.

The Telegraph has turned up information which suggests that a female security guard who had been missing for several days was found dead at Glen Valley ponds. It is believed the deceased was last seen at her Glen Valley post before she met her fate. A few days after she failed to return home, her brother went to Stallion security where she was employed to inquire about his sister. However her employer had no clues as to her whereabouts as her cell phone was off.

It was then that her employer filed missing person’s case and the police deployed a search team to search the area around her workplace. The search team mostly made up of Stallion security employees discovered the deceased’s jersey a few hundred metres from where she was stationed. This raised suspicion amongst the search party and after an intensified search, her decomposed body was then found near the ponds.

It is believed that before being murdered she was raped as her body was completely undressed. Broadhurst police Acting station commander detective superintendent Lengkwetse Philemon said his station is investigating a case in which a woman aged 35 from Mathaku village in Tswapong was found dead at Glen Valley sewage ponds.

He stated that though the investigations are ongoing, they strongly believe that the deceased might have been murdered.

No suspects have been apprehended in connection with the incident, he said.

Philemon stated that the deceased was reported as a missing person before her badly decomposed naked body was found near the ponds. “My officers are busy on the ground gathering whatever leads that might lead us to the arrest of the perpetrators”.

He also said the results of the post-mortem have not yet been released, but admitted that the area behind Glen Valley ponds is very dangerous. He appealed to members of the public to assist them with any information that might lead them to the arrest of culprits.

The director of Stallion security, Lesedi Mmusi, also confirmed the incident.

“It is true that one of my security guards was found dead at her post in Glen Valley. I do not have much detail at the moment.”

Almost a year ago, a 32 year old man from Nlakphane village in the North East and a woman aged 22 from Ntlhantlhe village were reported missing at Mogoditshane police station and later found dumped at the same ponds.
