A 19-year-old girl’s body was found dumped at the Wolfgat Nature Reserve three days after she went missing on October 8.
Andrelette Peters went to the shop with her friend Lynette to buy airtime and never returned home.
Peters was stabbed 120 times in the face. Her mother identified her by a tattoo which had her nickname “Ponkies” on her left arm.
Her mother Lonely Taai said, “She got worried when Andrelette didn’t return home and decided to search for her daughter the next day along with her friend Lynette.”
When she couldn’t find her daughter she opened a missing person’s docket.
She was allegedly last seen with a group of men in a blue taxi with tinted windows about a week ago.
Lonely provided police with a picture of Andrelette without knowing that the unidentified body which she suspected of as her daughter’s was at the morgue.
She said her worst nightmare became a reality when she was contacted by the police who suspected the body belonged to her daughter.
She appealed to the children not to mix with the wrong friends. Instead they should follow their dreams for a bright future.
