Table View police said officers responded to a request for a welfare check in Langley Crescent.

‘’An armed response officer greeted the police at the scene and informed them that upon entering the premises, he discovered the lifeless body of a female in a room. The house was in a state of disarray with numerous household items and the deceased's vehicle stolen. It appeared as if blunt force trauma to the body was the cause of death,’’ said Captain Adriana Chandler.

Four suspects were arrested in Atlantis on Saturday, in connection with the incident.

‘’The investigating officer followed up on available leads and ultimately arrested a 41 year old female and three males between the ages of 22 and 44 in Witsand, Atlantis on Saturday 30 March 2024 when they were found in possession of the motor vehicle and valuables of the deceased,’’ said Warrant Officer Joseph Swartbooi.

‘’Once charged the suspects are expected to make a court appearance in the Cape Town Magistrates court on charges of murder and possession of presumed stolen property,’’ he added.
