A man and his wife have been killed on a farm in Rustenburg in the North West, police said on Thursday.
Don du Plessis (72) and his wife Jackie (68) were
apparently assaulted with "objects" at their home around 2am on
Wednesday, Captain Elsabe Augustides said.
A visitor found their bodies in separate bedrooms two hours later. The wife had also been shot once in the head.
An undisclosed amount of cash was stolen from the safe as well as a camera and a laptop, Augustides said.
Police were looking to question a Zimbabwean couple,
who had been working for the Du Plessis couple. The woman was a
domestic while her boyfriend did general work on a bird farm.
"Police have linked the two to the crime because they disappeared a day before the bodies were found," Augustides said.
A house robbery and two murder dockets have been opened.
