Cape Town - A senior Hawks investigator denied involvement in the probe into the murders of the Van Breda family in Stellenbosch.

Detective Captain Jonathan Morris told News24 he had “absolutely nothing” to do with the investigation into the murders of Martin, Teresa and Rudi van Breda on the exclusive De Zalze golf estate last Tuesday.

Marli van Breda, the family’s 16-year-old daughter was seriously injured after suffering a severe head trauma and a severed jugular. She is currently in a stable condition in hospital.

Reports on Monday morning said Morris had taken over investigations but he said he had no idea where the claim came from.

Police are still keeping mum on all details surrounding the brutal murders of a wealthy family on a golf estate in Stellenbosch.

Van Breda’s daughter Marli is in a stable condition in hospital. She suffered a severe head trauma and a severed jugular.

The Van Breda son, Henri, was relatively unscathed and, at the weekend, an audio clip was broadcast by eNCA of his phone call to emergency services.

"My... my family and me were attacked... by a guy with an axe," he says calmly to the operator during the five minute call.
