AN interview for a job turned tragic after a Chitungwiza woman was murdered on her way to try her luck.
Define William (28) was found dead in Msasa on Saturday after having gone missing since April 17.
Her sister, Amalia William, confirmed the tragedy.
“I am greatly pained, l was not expecting this. We are working with the police for more details. Define had gone missing since April 17, while she was on her way to fulfil an interview invitation, which was scheduled at 10.30 am, with a big company in Msasa.
“We had reported this matter as a missing person case at Harare Central (IR 041641).”
Amalia said Define’s mobile phone became unreachable after she collected money from a local money agent in the CBD on the day she went missing.
“Before her disappearance, we had a confirmation message that she withdrew US$50 in town.
“Then, after that, she was nowhere to be seen. The money was withdrawn around 9am.
“Funeral arrangements will be announced in due course,” she said.
A close source said: “The body was discovered in a decomposed state after the alleged culprit was apprehended by police.
“The alleged suspect killed Define and he took everything, including the US$50, and later sold the phone to a man in Epworth who was caught by police after being tracked via a phone which her mother was now using.
“It’s a sad story that the thief wrestled with Define just after disembarking from a motor vehicle at the bus stop in Msasa.
“Zvakaoma, only for her body to be discovered yesterday after some police investigations,” said the source
