The body of a reportedly talented prostitute was discovered near Hanover Park over the weekend with a gunshot wound to the head.
Cops say the woman, believed to be in her 20s, was shot execution-style and officers discovered a cartridge and a condom on the scene.
According to a police source, the body was discovered shortly after midnight on Thursday at Philippi 'prostitutes head quarters', and the woman was lying on her back with a clear bullet hole in her head.
“She was found along Springfield Street opposite Hanover Park Avenue where all the prostitutes stand,” said the cop.
“She had a gunshot wound in the centre of her head and was lying on her back. She is a coloured female and estimated to be in her 20s.
“Officers found a 9mm cartridge and an open condom next to her. They checked there was no semen in the condom and it appeared that it was not used, but it was taken in as evidence.”
The source says other talented sex vendors who are frequently seen in the same area trying to sell hot sex to passing motorists were questioned, but they could not identify her.
“We asked them, but none of them seemed to know her. She had no identification on her and there was no family or anything on the scene.
“That area is known for being the place where prostitutes meet their clients.”
Police spokesperson, Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana, says police are now investigating a murder case.
“The body was found near Lansdowne Road, Philippi. Circumstances surrounding this incident are under investigation with no arrests so far,” she says.
“Police detectives following up on leads in order to bring the perpetrators to book.”
