The Steenberg Community Policing Forum (CPF) has condemned the murder of a 92-year-old woman in Lakeview yesterday (30 October).

Steenberg police spokesperson Constable Wesley Twigg says: “At about 16:40 the body of a 92-year-old woman was discovered at an address in Chad Road. The deceased was found with her legs and hands tied together with a scarf in her mouth and a head wound. A case of murder was opened for investigation. Suspects are unknown and yet to be arrested. Anyone with any information about this incident is requested to contact Steenberg police on 021 702 9000 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.”

CPF chairperson Gavin Walbrugh says it is “very unfortunate and sad that something like this had to happen”. “I don’t have much detail on this incident but I can confirm that there was murder of an elderly citizen in Lakeview. It appears to be a burglary and she was the elder in the house, which she shares with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. However, I’m still waiting for more information and clarity on the case,” he says.
