The forum's Imraahn Mukkadam says the community is both saddened and traumatised by the event.

We are all so traumatised by it that it really just takes away your belief in the goodness of humanity, that culprits like this are capable of such a hideous deed, among us.

While there is still no confirmation of an arrest, Mukkadam says a suspect was taken in for questioning.

The suspect was in fact of the marchers at the scene where the young girl's body was found.... it is difficult for us to confirm everything but the information tat we have is that he was a suspect initially, and he was held for questioning and now he is again sought as a suspect in this matter.
