JOHANNESBURG - Motshidisi Pascalina did not live to see her matric results. Instead, the body of the young woman was discovered in a veld, mutilated and burnt.

The Vaal LGBTI community is reeling in shock after the discovery in Evaton north during the December holidays.
According to Cedric Davids, a member of the Young Communists’ League working Committee in Gauteng, Pascalina was last seen on 16 December when she was going out with friends.

"Her body was discovered in a veld two days later. We suspect she was raped. Her body was burnt. Her eyes were taken out and her private parts were mutilated."

Davids said Pascalina's parents were initially unaware it was her.

"Most of her body had sustained burn injuries. Her parents identified her by her tattoo on her leg, it was the only thing visible."

Twitter users expressed sadness and outrage at the murder.
