Identikit shows black suspect in PE teacher killing

Police have released an identikit of one of the men listed as a person of interest in the murder of 28-year-old Uitenhage teacher Jayde Panayiotou.

The poster of the black suspect was released by detectives on Sunday and followed photos of the two individuals captured on ATM security cameras last week.

“No arrests have been made at this stage,” Eastern Cape police spokesperson Sandra Janse van Rensburg told News24 on Sunday evening.

The Riebeek College Girl’s High School teacher was allegedly abducted outside her home in Kabega on Tuesday morning.

Panayiotou’s body was found by police just a day later in an isolated area near KwaNobuhle township in Uitenhage.

The 28 year old teacher was last seen waiting for a lift from her complex on Tuesday.

Thousands had gathered at the Kabega Park police station in Port Elizabeth last Wednesday night to express their condolences over the killing of teacher.

A dedicated task team – consisting of detectives, crime intelligence officers and forensic experts – was established to follow up on all leads and information.

A R50,000 reward for the arrests of the suspects has been offered.
