Colleagues say Charl Kinnear’s assassination left a void in police service
A memorial service was held for late top detective Charl Kinnear on Wednesday in Belhar.
His murder was a shock to family members and colleagues.
The anti-gang unit member was shot dead outside his home in Bishop Lavis earlier this month.
His colleagues expressed that his murder has left a void in the police service.
During the slain officer’s memorial service, a senior Western Cape police official paid tribute to him.
Before his death, Kinnear was tasked with a sensitive investigation into the criminal underworld.
It was widely circulated that his assassination could be linked to the investigation he was carrying out.
Major-General Andre Lincoln: “I find the task daunting. Lieutenant-Colonel Charl Kinnear is dead. He was brutally killed. That without a doubt is the reason for the heaviness in my spirit.”
However, a former Rugby player has been arrested as a suspect in connection to his murder.
