Newlands East police are investigating a case of murder after a 48-year-old woman was found dead with multiple stab wounds inside her vehicle on Monday morning.

Provincial police spokesperson Cpt Nqobile Gwala confirmed the incident and said a case of murder was opened at Newlands East police station for investigation.

According to the source, who wished not to be named, the boy was in the car, which was parked at Westrich Grounds, with the victim the entire night.
