Missing Pregnant Nurse Found Dead By Birdwatcher Stuck In Tree In South Africa


The body of a pregnant nurse was found on a steep slope near a tree at Oribi Gorge last Friday morning.
The gruesome discovery was made by a Johannesburg birdwatcher, who contacted the police.
Nelisa Cele (31),  who was six months pregnant, had been an enrolled nurse at Gamalakhe Community Healthcare Centre since 2011.
It is believed that on Wednesday last week, she was due to take delivery of a new vehicle when she went missing.

“The visitor from Johannesburg took a closer look at an image of a bird he had captured on his camera and noticed what looked like a body in the picture,” said health spokesman, Ncumisa Mafunda.
The birdwatcher confirmed that it was indeed a body covered in a cloth, and alerted the police.

It is believed that those responsible for Ms Cele’s death had thrown her body down the cliff in the hopes that it would never be found,” said Ms Mafunda.
The Port Shepstone Search and Rescue Unit retrieved the body from the steep slope.
Police spokesman Captain Nqobile Gwala said the body showed signs of severe assault. A case of murder is being investigated by Paddock police and no arrests have been made. A post mortem examination will be conducted to establish the cause of death.
The memorial service for Ms Cele will be held at the Methodist Church in Gamalakhe tomorrow (Thursday) at 1pm. She will be buried on Saturday.
