Gauteng police officials have apprehended a lady, her son and the son’s friend. This was after ther the killing of an 84-year-old lady at a farm in Fochville on Monday. The hunt for the three people guided the officials to Klerksdorp in the North West, where they were found.

“He knocked at the door looking for his employer. After receiving no response, he became suspicious. He walked around the house and noted the bedroom window that was forced open. He immediately informed the next-door tenant and they called family members, who subsequently notified the police,” says the police spokesperson. When the police searched the house they discovered the lady’s body hidden under clothing in the dining room. The police spokesperson says their examination led to the three suspects aged 23, 29 and 64.
Stolen belongings were discovered in the house of the suspects that stayed in same premises with the lady who passed away in a flat. Lieutenant-General Elias Mawela, the Gauteng police commissioner, says that crime against the elderly is one of the officials’ priorities. The three suspects are set to appear at the Fochville Magistrate’s Court for the charges of house robbery and murder.
