Police probe family farm murder
Bloemfontein - The investigation into the murder of members of a Griekwastad family on their farm during the Easter weekend was continuing, Northern Cape police said on Thursday.
Captain Cherelle Ehlers said the post mortems on the victims in Bloemfontein were completed.
Deon Steenkamp, 44, his wife, Christel, 43, and their daughter Mathella, 14, were shot on their farm Naauwhoek at about 18:30 on Good Friday.
The Steenkamp’s son, Don, 15, heard shots fired while he was busy in an outside storeroom, police said.
The teenager discovered the bodies in the living room and drove to the police station in town to report the incident. Police said he handed two firearms over to them in town, which he had found at the scene.
Ehlers said the post mortem reports were now part of the investigation into the incident. A team of forensic investigators from Pretoria were also at the farm this week to do investigations.
A memorial service for the Steenkamp family was held in Griekwastad on Thursday.
Ehlers said police had not arrested anyone in connection with the matter.
