Baby, woman murdered at Delmas daycare


Cape Town - A caregiver and a 5-month-old baby boy were found murdered in Delmas, in Mpumalanga, police said on Wednesday.

The mother of the murdered baby had phoned Margaret de Goede, the caregiver, a few times to check on her child who was sick, but there was no answer.

The woman and a friend then went to the day mother's house, but became concerned when they heard a child crying.

They broke a window to gain entry to the house where they found an 18-month child, and called police when De Goede and the other baby, Wiaan Botes, could not be found.

Police arrived and made the grisly discovery of the Wiaan's body under a bed, a police spokesperson said.

De Goede, in her 60's, was later found dead in a garden shed.

Police forensics officials were on the scene until after 18:00.
