    'Siam's murder seems to have been a kidnapping gone wrong'

    Durban - Amid tributes flowing in for murdered Siam Lee, who dreamed of going to film school, police investigations this week revealed a connection to a seedy world of drugs and prostitution.

    On Saturday afternoon police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Thulani Zwane confirmed that a close relative of Siam’s had been taken in for questioning in connection with her murder. The relative was later released without charge.

    While Siam’s mother, Nan Lee, has declined to comment on disclosures arising from police investigations, it is alleged that her death was linked to more than R50000 owed to a Nigerian drug dealer.

    It is believed Siam might have been taken for ransom until the debt was paid.

    “Her murder was clearly not planned; it seems to have been a kidnapping gone wrong,” said a private investigator who is assisting the police investigations.

    He said whoever had killed her had left quite a trail.

    A second source with intimate knowledge of the investigation confirmed the private investigator’s information.

    Siam attended the private Crawford College North Coast and completed her matric in 2015.

    Her friends have described her on social media as a “full of life” and “carefree” soul who always saw the best in people.

    On her Facebook page on Saturday, tributes continued to pour in.

    “Everyone who has met Si and knows her knows how she has had an impact on them in even the smallest ways and what an amazing soul she was. We are all here for support and to find justice and help in any way we can."

    “I still remember meeting her for the first day and I swear I didn’t only find a friend in her. A strong-minded, beautiful and imperial soul was what you were, Si,” Farah Fayleen posted on Siam’s wall."

    Robert Hardy also commented on her wall: “She was such a genuine girl; she had a heart greater than anyone I know. I’m so glad I got to meet you and share a bit of my life with you. I’ll never forget you. You influenced me to look at the brighter side of life and for that I will be forever grateful.”

    On Thursday last week, Siam was reported to have been abducted outside 60 Margaret Maytom Road in Durban North. The house, owned by a Chinese national, has operated as a massage parlour and has been raided by police several times.

    Siam Lee case: relative released without charge

    Durban - A relative of slain Durban woman Siam Lee, who was taken in for questioning on Friday, 
has been released without charge.

    Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Thulani Zwane said that no arrests had yet been made.

    DNA tests are still under way, but a badly burnt body found in a sugar cane field in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands was on Thursday identified as Lee’s.

    She was apparently identified by her lip ring and her feet, bringing to an end a large-scale search for the missing 20-year-old.
    Lee was reported missing on January 4, hours after she had disappeared from what is believed to be a brothel operating under the guise of a “guesthouse” in Margaret Maytom Avenue in Durban North.

    The Sunday Tribune reported that Lee’s death was allegedly linked to a R50 000 drug debt.

    I just knew something was not kosher in this case.

    Just reassuring to know that it was linked to drugs and prostitution and not like there are people in black cars driving around picking up clean innocent girls.

    what did i tell you. the mother was in on this mess. no tears no f all emotions in that video. dig deeper and you will probably find she is the one who orchestrated this whole thing.
    The restraining order doesn't mean we can't hang out, it just means I can't get within 50 feet of you. You wanna play frisbee?

    Ayyy, what a trainwreck of a story.
    Ottoman cannons can't destroy Byzantine walls. 1453 was an inside job.

    A local resident, who also asked to remain anonymous, described it as a place where there was “a lot of coming and going”.
