Pretoria - The bodies of a Pretoria couple and their dog were found at the couple’s home in Queenswood on Tuesday.

Beeld reported that the 65-year-old man and 60-year-old woman were believed to have gassed themselves and their dog in their Ford Bantam bakkie.

A note was pinned to the vehicle: “Just leave us alone”.

A police spokesperson said the gardener had heard the engine running in the garage and had called one of the couple’s friends.

The deceased man apparently had a daughter in Mauritius who had not yet been informed of his death.

An inquest will be held.

    Bheki, I'm not saying you mean this in a bad way, but does colour or political affiliation really matters? Sad story indeed!
