Teen arrested following gruesome murder of couple dumped in open veld
Police have arrested a 17-year-old after bodies of a couple were found in an open field in the Northern Cape.
The couple was found brutally murdered and dumped in an open veld in Pampierstad.
Lt-Col Dimakatso Mooi said “a preliminary investigation led the police to the suspect who is now arrested”.
The slain husband was a retired mine-worker while the wife was a teacher. Their bodies were dumped in an open veld.
A source close to the investigation said the couple was found lying close to each other. The two bodies were seen in their pyjamas.
The 67-year-old man was found lying face up while the 57-year-old woman faced down.
“The bodies were discovered … with open cut wounds and marks that suggested that they had been dragged with a vehicle to where they were found,” said Mooi.
They were both residents of Pampierstad.
“The motive of the murder is unknown at this stage and the suspect is expected to appear before court on Monday. The police investigation continues,” said Mooi.
