Gauteng police have confirmed that a suspect has been arrested in connection with the murder of a 16-year-old Roodepoort girl.

Louise de Waal was allegedly kidnapped yesterday morning just outside her home.

A body believed to be Louise’s was found burnt beyond recognition on a farm in Magaliesburg, but DNA tests are needed to confirm its identity.

Police spokesperson Major General Nobesuthu Masiya told reporters in Johannesburg that the suspect handed himself over to the police in KwaZulu Natal.

The man is allegedly linked to nine other cases of rape and one of murder.
