Posted by Avuya Walters

Baden Powell Drive is quickly becoming a popular dumping site for cold-blooded murderers.

The stretch of road that connects Khayelitsha to Strandfontein has been in the headlines after two bodies were found dumped in the bushy area, on Sunday and Monday.

Two victims found dead on Baden Powell Drive

As reported by News24, the bodies of a man and a woman were found on the road that rides along Harare, a community in Khayelitsha.

Both victims had sustained gunshot wounds to the head. The man, however, was still alive when he was found and has since been rushed to the hospital for treatment.

Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the woman. According to police spokesperson Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana, she was shot in the head and body and by the time her body was discovered, it was too late.

Police release details on Jane Doe

At this time, the victim is being held at a mortuary as a Jane Doe. The only information police have is the estimation of her age, which is between 25 and 30 years old.

When she was found, the victim was wearing brown stockings underneath grey shorts, a white t-shirt and a black and yellow jacket.

Is Baden Powell Drive the deadliest road in Cape Town?

This is yet another unsolved murder involving a victim that was found on Baden Powell Drive. Many fear that the stretch of road is an area of choice for Cape Town’s most ruthless murders.

It was only three weeks ago that the three bodies were found in various advanced stages of decomposition. In one incident, detectives stumbled on a woman and a man who were bound by rope and dumped in an area between Wolfgat Nature Reserve and the Strandfontein Pavilion.

In another discovery, the decapitated body of a woman was found along the stretch of road. All of these cases remain unsolved.
