The bodies of two elderly women were found in a house in Lenasia, extension 11, on Wednesday morning, Gauteng police said.

Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said the women, aged 70 and 75, were found by a relative. "One of the old ladies, who was full of blood, was found in the sitting room. The other was found dead in a bedroom," he said.

"The motive of the killing is unknown."

He said the weapon used to kill the women had not yet been identified. Both suffered head wounds, and one had strangulation bruises.

"We cannot rule out that there might have been rape, but that will be determined by the investigation," Makhubela said.
