The body of eight-year-old Tazne Van Wyk has been found outside Worcester.
Police spokesperson, Brigadier Novela Potelwa has confirmed that Moehydien Pangaker pointed out the body to police on Wednesday night following his arrest in Cradock on Monday.
“Further interviewing of the suspect by detectives led to the gruesome discovery of the body of the child in a stormwater pipe outside Worcester on Wednesday evening as pointed out by him.”
Pangaker will be charged with murder and is expected to appear in the Goodwood Magistrates' court on Friday.
“As the investigation unfolds, the possibility of the suspect facing additional charges cannot be ruled out,” says Potelwa
Pangaker, 54, who was the child's neighbour in Ravensmead, was due to arrive in Cape Town today.
Meanwhile, the parents of Tazne have just been informed of the discovery and they are receiving counselling.
