Murder

Court told body parts of slain Nosicelo Mtembeni’s were immersed in bleach

When a top medical officer testified earlier this week, the court heard that the skin of Mtbeni's hands and head seemed wrinkled, indicating that they had been immersed in a liquid for an extended length of time.



CAPE TOWN – To disguise her identity, a slain Fort Hare University student was dismembered.


This was heard in the East London High Court, where Alutha Pasile is on trial for the murder of Nosicelo Mtebeni.


In August, he pled guilty to murdering and dismembering his 23-year-old lover.


Pasile acknowledged to removing Mtebeni's hands and head because he did not want her to be identified, according to a social worker who questioned the convicted killer.


Detectives discovered these body parts in his room in a black bag, while the remainder of the corpse was discovered put in a suitcase and dumped on a street corner near his house.


Earlier this week, the court heard from a chief medical officer that the skin of Mtbeni's hands and head were wrinkled, indicating that they had been immersed in a liquid for an extended length of time.


On Thursday, a social worker testifying in court said Pasile acknowledged to buying bleach to get rid of the odor of the dismembered body parts.


He also went to a hardware shop and purchased a hacksaw and latex gloves.
