Saturday at 15:00, after having lunch in town with their son and daughter-in-law, the couple returned to their farm, Knoppe. They were found dead in their bedroom RT shortly before 20:00 that same night. Both had bullet wounds.The murderer(s) are believed to have gained access to the farm house through a bathroom window and were probably waiting for the couple to return home. Farmers in the area became concerned when the couple didn’t respond to calls on the Marnet-radio. These calls are done at specific times ever night by farmers. A resident described them as “very friendly people who wouldn’t harm a fly”. Hardened police officers said that this was one of the worst crime scenes they’ve had to deal with. The Afrikaner couple were ‘slaughtered like animals’. The murderers waited for the couple to return to the farm house from church and drank alcohol while they waited. A traumatized Louis-Chris Fourie said, “It is my dad, he was murdered…what can I say?” http://www.volksblad.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Soos-skape-geslag-20120910 http://www.volksblad.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Dubbele-plaasmoord-skok-Trompsburg-gemeenskap-20120909
Johannesburg – A manhunt continued on Friday for four armed men who shot dead a teenage girl and wounded her father and sister in Muldersdrift on the West Rand, Gauteng police said.
“The 13-year-old girl, her 17-year-old sister and their father were attacked on Wednesday evening when they returned home,” Captain Pinky Tsinyane told Sapa.
Alyssa Botha died after being shot in the stomach, Beeld reported. Her sister, Megan, was shot in her legs and wounded. Their father was shot in the stomach and had to have a kidney and part of his liver and colon removed.
Megan told police how they arrived home at about 19:00 on Wednesday evening when a group of men attacked them as they got out of the car.
She put her hands in the air and told them her phone was in her bag. Her sister did the same. A shot was fired and her sister fell, screaming. As Megan grabbed her to protect her, Alyssa was shot.
“They pulled me about 5m from the car and shot me. They grabbed my bag from my shoulders and shot me again while I was lying on the ground.”
Most of the men ran away but one went to her father, Anton, who was still in the car, grabbing his phone and shooting him when he resisted.
“I crept to my sister and held her,” Megan said.
Anton Botha is in a stable condition in hospital.
