Man Arrested As Police Discover Decomposed Bodies of 6 Prostitutes

Six women’s decomposing bodies were found by police at a panel business in central Johannesburg, South Africa.

The likelihood that the bodies are those of missing sex workers in the vicinity is being looked into by police. A 21-year-old has been detained for the victims’ murders, according to police spokesman Brigadier Brenda Muridili, who confirmed the incident in a statement on Monday, October 10, 2022.

The victims are thought to have died some time ago.

Following the discovery of six bodies at a building in the Johannesburg CBD on Sunday, October 9, 2022, the police in Johannesburg arrested a 21-year-old male for murder, according to the statement.

“The police were called to the building due to a foul smell coming out of one of the rooms. That is when a body of a woman was found. A preliminary investigation led the police to the suspect, believed to be the last person seen with the deceased woman,”

“It is reported that on 02 October 2022 at 20:00, the suspect was seen with the deceased woman. She was never seen again until her body was discovered on Sunday morning. The clothes she was wearing matches the description of one of the missing persons reported recently.

“Upon questioning the suspect, the police went back to the building and five more bodies were discovered outside the building where there is a makeshift workshop and rubbish dumpsters.

“Unfortunately, the other five bodies are at the late stage of decomposition. They will be subjected to Forensic analysis for identification.” “The suspect will be charged with six counts of murder and the Provincial Murder and Robbery unit is investigating.”
