On Wednesday August 21, 2019, a young lady was peacefully asleep, when she was stabbed in her left eye, and presumably died instantly. Lynette Volschenk (32) was beheaded and a hacksaw used, to severe both her legs and arms, from her body.
Francois le Roux, the brother-in-law of Lynette said:
“She was pulled out of our lives in a very horrific way. It wasn’t just a crime, it was violence.”
Francois is a sales coach and is married to Lynette’s sister, Chrystal.
According to sources, police are investigating the possibility of the attacker watching Lynette, for more than two weeks, before the murder.
The suspect was seen regularly, on the 12th floor of the Seesig apartment building, where he could watch the front door of her apartment in Bellville.
Bellville is a suburb of the City of Cape Town, in South Africa.
It is alleged, the murderer used a Bible, and pretended to want to gift it to Lynette. This gave him an opportunity, to learn how to gain access to her apartment.
The Bible was found the day her body was discovered.
It is believed Lynette’s body, was cut into pieces with a hacksaw and knife.
It is alleged, the murderer bought the items at a hardware store, in Bellville a week before.
Her stomach, was also cut into pieces.
Her body parts, were then allegedly taken in a blue container, with a white plastic cover, from her apartment, to the suspect’s apartment in the same building.
A source at the scene said, parts of Lynette’s body were found in garbage bags, at various places in the building. Police also allegedly confiscated bloody towels, on the ground floor, presumably used to wipe her blood.
According to CCTV footage, the murderer walked about half a kilometer with the victim’s head, the next morning.
He had wrapped the head in a plastic shopping bag, and hid it in some bushes, at Bate Street in Bellville.
