The accused of murdering an Eerste Rivier woman Monica Sippel died after collapsing during a police pursuit in Stellenbosch last week.
It is reported that 23 year old Jacques Linders appeared very tired after a 3.5 kilometre chase by the police then died a moments later on his way to the hospital.
A post mortem on Linders death is yet to be carried out. Captain Renee Mathee said that they sent their condolences to the suspect’s family.
Mathee said that Sippel’s results came up yesterday.
“After the suspect collapsed we called the ambulance and the ambulance notified that they are busy and they would not be able to attend sooner”
“The Independent Complaints Directorate attended the scene to investigate the cause of death”
Mathee told reporters that there was no foul play suspected in Linders death.
