On Tuesday evening South African Police Service (SAPS) received a complaint at a house in Paarl. Police responded and on their arrival were met by the, now deceased owner’s son. The doors and windows were found to be locked, but police managed to gain access into the building.
SAPS Captain John Waterhouse says that the motive for the murder is still unknown.
“Police managed to break a window towards the rear of the premises and gained access. While searching the premises, police came across the body of the 79 year old woman in one of the rooms,” he said.
Forensic and fingerprint experts as well as Paarl detectives arrived on the scene shortly after the gruesome discovery. Waterhouse added that investigations into the matter will continue.
