The Cape Town family of the slain teenager, Lekita Moore, has expressed shock at the news that the person accused of her murder intends to apply for bail.
The 18-year-old was brutally murdered in Valhalla Park at the weekend. Her badly mutilated body was found on an open tract of land on Sunday.
She was last seen after she left for a night out on Saturday but she never returned.
A 19-year-old suspect was arrested in connection with the murder and has made a brief appearance in the Bishop Lavis Magistrate’s Court.
Moore’s father, Charles, says they are struggling to come to terms with her death.
“The feeling I’ve got in my heart, it was the first time I saw him and the feeling I got in my heart is that they must lock him up, take the keys and throw them far away. That is the way I feel.”[Source: SABC]
