BLOEMFONTEIN: The police in Mangaung Metro have launched a manhunt after the body of the 66-year-old white female was found dumped on an open veld outside Riverside township near Dewetsdorp during Wednesday 25 August 2021 afternoon. 

Witnesses saw a red Volkswagen Golf driving towards the open veld. The occupants stopped, off-loaded something and then sped off. The police were summoned to the scene and the lifeless body of the Dewetsdorp resident from Caroll Street was discovered. 

The deceased's Red Volkswagen Golf Chicco with registration number CNF 842 MP which she usually used to do odd jobs and transport local people was not found at her residence. Preliminary investigation was instituted and the video footage at the filing station shows two African males acquiring fuel at about 16:00. Information from the deceased's neighbours is that she left her home to help a client to transport the television.
