August 18, 2014
A lesbian teen is dead after being raped and strangled by a 24-year-old man in South Africa. Gay Star News reports that 18-year-old Gift Makau was found dead in Ventersdorp on Friday, August 15. She had been raped and stranged with a wire and shoelace, and found with a running hose forced into her mouth.
Gay Star News said that a 24-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the rape and murder, and was set to appear before the Ventersdorp Magistrates' Court on August 18.
News 24 reports that it appears to be another case of so-called "corrective rape."
