Four to appear for painter murder

2011-03-14 10:49

Four people were expected to appear in the Pretoria North Magistrates Court today in connection with the murder of painter Cornelius Bosch, police said.

“They are appearing in court today [Monday],” said Captain Katlego Mogale.

A fifth man was arrested in Montana yesterday, she said, but could not confirm a Beeld newspaper report that he was Bosch’s personal assistant.

He would appear in court at a later stage.

The police arrested the four men in Eersterust on Friday after finding them in possession of vehicle parts that belonged to Bosch.

Bosch (55) went missing from his Kameeldrift home after he was last seen on February 24.

The police said last week that his charred body, with a bullet wound to the head, had been found in the veld in Derdepoort, near the Zambezi shopping mall, north-east of Pretoria.

Bosch had been working as a painter full-time for the past 20 years. His works ranged from landscapes to abstract paintings.
