Dressed in a white shirt and grey pants, the man believed to be behind the kidnapping and murder of 20-year-old Siam Lee is now in police custody.

The search for the suspect came to an end on Wednesday following the arrest of a 29-year-old man at his residence in Hillcrest, west of Durban.

A private detective company involved in the case shared an image of the arrest on their Facebook page. “Yesterday morning this office directed the SAPS to where the SAPS recovered and seized the black [Mercedes Benz] Vito that was allegedly used in Siam Lee's abduction."

“At 17h00 this office detained and had arrested a 29-year-old man whom we believe abducted and murdered Siam Lee. The suspect was residing in Assagay (Outer West).

"It was a good day for Justice which we pray will prevail at trial."

There was an unlicensed 9mm pistol and cell phone found on scene and recovered. Siam Lee went missing on January 4 and her scorched body was found in a sugarcane field several days later.

“He will be charged with kidnapping and murder and will appear in court soon,” Colonel Thembeka Mbele told YOU.

“We’d just like to thank the members of the family for not putting pressure on the police up until the arrest as the police are trained to follow up on information and then arrest after all investigations have been conducted,” she says.

The investigations are still in an early phase. While police believe they have apprehended the main suspect, it is still unclear if more arrests will be made.
