SAPS shocked by murder scene of woman (92)


The woman was found lying on her back half-naked in the lounge.

Police officers were shocked when they found that a 92-year-old woman was murdered and possibly raped.

A friend of the family went to the elderly woman’s house in Malvern on Monday, to check if she was okay.

“The woman’s family was worried as they did not hear from her in a few days. The family friend found her dead,” said Const Mpho Mashakane, Cleveland SAPS communications officer.

There was dry blood on her mouth and it seemed like she had been strangled. “It is also believed that she was raped. We are investigating this. The house was also in a mess with drawers that were ripped out and clothes lying on the floor,” said Const Mashakane.

At the time of going to print, no arrests were made and it was not yet confirmed if anything was stolen.

Colonel Bongani Dlamini, station commander, urged family members to keep in contact with their parents and grandparents regularly if they are living alone.
