Pietermaritzburg businesswoman Kavita Nerputh, 41, was found strangled in her car yesterday.
Her body was discovered in her car on Alexandra Road in Scottsville on Monday at 7.30 pm.
KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Thembeka Mbele said in a statement that the businesswoman was presumably stranged. The car doors were locked. The police had to break open the back doors to remove her body.
Alexandra police are investigating the incident, but no one has been arrested in connection with the murder, Mbele said.
The Witness reported that according to a source, Nerputh was dressed neatly in black trousers and a formal top, high-heel shoes and jewelry. Her handbag, purse, and jewelry were untouched, according to the newspaper.
