The bodies of two babies were found in a Cape woman’s freezer on Monday.
Western Cape police have since been trying to find out how long the bodies were hidden in the West Bank home on the Cape Flats and how the babies died.
Provincial police spokesman Frederick van Wyk says a 35-year-old woman was taken to the scene for questioning.
He said an autopsy will be done to determine the cause of the babies’ death.
“It will shed light on how old the babies were and what caused their deaths. It will also determine whether the woman is facing charges of concealing a birth or murder, ”says Van Wyk.
Patrick Madasi, a community leader who lives in the same street, says people in the street are shocked and anxious that the autopsy should be completed.
“When people heard about the incident, no one could believe it was the same woman staying in their street. No one knew she was pregnant. According to information, she was married, but she is no longer, ”says Madasi.
Madasi says residents are now waiting for police to give them answers.
