WINDHOEK, 03 JAN (NAMPA) – The Namibian Police are searching for the boyfriend of the woman found dead under a bridge in Khomasdal on Sunday.
City Police Spokesperson, Fabien Amukwelele told Nampa on enquiry Tuesday the man and now deceased Brenda ‘Lotty’ Mouton-Smith lived together under the bridge where her half-naked body was found in a partially decomposed state.
“He is wanted for questioning because there are strong suspicions from both friends and relatives that he might have links to the murder of his girlfriend,” Amukwelele said.
A cousin to the suspect told this agency on Tuesday the two lived together under the bridge, while their one-and-a-half-year-old daughter lives with the suspect's mother.
He last saw the suspect on Saturday at around 22h00.
“However, he is now nowhere to be found; all we heard is that he is now running around town,” the cousin said on condition of anonymity.
He pleaded with whoever knows of his cousin’s whereabouts to help the police track down the suspect in order to figure out what exactly happened that fateful day.
“We just find it very strange that he decided to disappear all of a sudden because if he is innocent, he should come and prove his innocence,” he suggested.
