NELSPRUIT – Mpumalanga Police confirmed Friday that a fourth suspect has been arrested in connection with the murder of Hillary Gardee.
The individual was reportedly handcuffed Thursday in Kwa-Thema Township in Springs.
Police say the suspect was in possession of a firearm when arrested and has been linked to three other crimes in Mpumalanga.
Hillary, the daughter of EFF politician Godrich Gardee, was found murdered in Mpumalanga in April this year after being reported missing.
Three men linked to the murder case have also been arrested on charges of rape, possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition and conspiracy to commit murder.
