Daughter finds mother murdered

2010-09-11 08:30

An 18-year-old girl found her 47-year-old mother murdered at their home in Stellenbosch yesterday.

“The deceased’s daughter came home from school at 11:45am and rang the bell a few times, but nobody opened the door,” said Captain Rene Matthee.

“She entered and saw that the house was ransacked. She checked the rooms and discovered the body of her mother in the bathroom.”

The girl alerted the neighbours and the police were called.

Matthee said it appeared that the woman had been strangled.

A silver-grey BMW-740i was stolen.
