The half-naked body of a 36-year-old woman was found in her house in Pniel near Paarl, Western Cape police said on Tuesday.
Police discovered the woman's body on Monday around 12.30pm.
"Her body was found on the bedroom floor with an electric cord around her neck," said Superintendent Billy Jones.
Jones said it appeared as though the woman had been strangled.
Police were informed by the landlord of the premises in Johannesdal on the R310, after he suspected something was wrong.
The woman was last seen alive on Sunday evening. Her white Nissan bakkie with registration CL 45199 was stolen, and a case of murder and robbery was being investigated.
Jones said anyone with information could contact the Groot Drakenstein police on 021-874-4000. - Sapa
