A beautiful Durban teen has broken people’s hearts after her charred body was found in the bush near Umlazi in Durban. The 21 year old Mechanical Engineering student who originally hails from Swaziland went missing over the weekend and did not return home on Monday which caused panic among her 3 room mates.
The girl, known in the neighborhood as Hlengiwe apparently left her residency to visit her boyfriend in Morningside, Durban. When she did not return, her panicked friends contacted her boyfriend who said he did not see her and they actually had not planned to see each other that weekend.
A police report was made and a search ensued. A search in the nearby bushes revealed the gruesome scene where the remains of her charred body were found. Though the police say they await lab reports to identify if the remains belong to Hlengiwe, her friends say it is definitely her judging from the patches of clothes which did not burn.
No arrests have been made but police said they have a few leads.
