Police working 'round the clock' to find Jayde Panayioutou killers

The SAPS detectives assigned to the investigation of the murder of Jayde Panayioutou are working around the clock to follow up all information and leads they have in the case, Eastern Cape police said.

"Persons of interests have been questioned since the day of the victim’s abduction, which is normal procedure during an investigation and the detectives will continue doing so until the perpetrators involved in her abduction and murder are arrested.

"The investigation is continuing and no suspect has been arrested or positively linked to the crime at this point in time," the police said.

Panayiotou’s body was found in an isolated area in the KwaNobuhle township, outside Uitenhage, last Monday. She was abducted from her home in the Kabega Park area on her way to work.

Police have released an identikit of one of the men believed to be involved in the murder of Panayiotou.

The man in the pictures taken from ATM cameras allegedly withdrew an undisclosed amount of money from Panayiotou’s account following her disappearance.

On Thursday, police said a preliminary police investigation showed Panayiotou may have been shot.

Panayiotou was laid to rest on Tuesday.
