The body of a woman in her 30s was discovered in a field near the Despatch police station in Port Elizabeth on Monday, Eastern Cape police said.

“An on duty security guard heard gunshots near his workplace and upon further investigation, he saw the body of a woman lying in an open field,” Warrant Officer Basil Seekoei said.

The body was found in Perseverance around 9am. The woman had been shot in the head twice. The motive of the killing was unclear.

The security guard saw a metallic brown Isuzu double cab bakkie with a blue stripe on the sides speeding away from the scene. Police were looking for the driver.
