A 41-year-old man has been detained in connection with the murder of Fyzabad mother of two Tenile Cupid.
The suspect, a close male relative, was arrested by police at his home in Fyzabad around midday on Wednesday.
The police were told by relatives that they last saw Cupid with him on Monday night.
Cupid, 23, reportedly went with him to get something to eat on Monday around 10.20 pm, but never returned to her mother’s home at Easy Street, Fyzabad.
On Tuesday, her mother Nathalie Monzano reported her missing to the police after calls to her cellphone went unanswered.
Later that day, around 3.15 pm a WASA employee found her body in a forested area at Well#8 off Syncline Road, Santa Flora.
She was nude and bore a wound to her head. Cupid returned to her mother’s home about three weeks ago after she broke off a relationship.
