Cape Town - The Lotz family has axed private detective and former super sleuth Piet Byleveld from the investigation into the death of Stellenbosch student Inge Lotz.

In a statement, the family thanked Byleveld for his assistance and confirmed that their agreement had been terminated, reported Beeld.

Byleveld had been appointed to the case by the Lotzes a year ago.

Meanwhile, the Hawks - who are investigating the brutal 2005 murder - have requested that two young women who were dressed “like goths” and visited the crime scene shortly after the murder contact the police.

The young women were apparently dressed in black clothing and appeared at the flat on the night of the murder.

"They looked like goths. We want to know what they were doing there. Were they friends or bystanders? They form part of the loose ends that the police want to clear up. It could be innocent. We just want to investigate it," said investigating officer Lieutenant Colonel Mike Barkhuizen.
