The 28-year-old victim and her male friend were kidnapped on Saturday when a group stopped their taxi near a major township.
The attackers forced the driver out of the vehicle and sped off with the tourists. The 31-year-old man was released an hour later but the body of the woman was found later in the Lingelethu West area, southeast of the city centre.

UPDATE By Sarah 15/11/2010Those of us who wondered why this particular killing received such widespread international coverage, when the brutal murders of whites are usually censored and covered up my the controlled media, may gain a clue to the possible reason from the above photo of the victim and her husband
Before anyone accuses me of applying differing standards to different victims, and assuming the facts of the case are as they are represented, this case is no less tragic than the thousands upon thousands ob murders which occur in South Africa. However, what is tragic, and shocking, is the that it has been given far greater prominence because of the race of the victim.
And our enemies call us racists!
