Couple from Swellendam MURDERED

The bodies of a man and wife were found in their Swellendam home on Thursday, Western Cape police said.

Inspector November Filander said police were called to the scene after the couple's gardener saw blood on the front door.

When police gained entry into the house from the back, they discovered the 63-year-old man dead on the lounge floor and his 58-year-old wife dead on the bedroom floor.

Police suspected that the killers used a blunt object to kill the couple.

It was unclear how the killers entered the house and if anything was taken.

    I tend to agree with all the previous comments and also ask the same questions, however no answers to date. These two people were my family.

    WHAT THE HELL!! they publish stories about zuma's wedding and how a celeb has yet another divorce, but they cannot tell the public about an event like this in our backyards? the government is too ashamed, probably

    Yes it is very sad how so much crime happens here in SA and most of it dont even make ANY headlines ANYWHERE!! At least now with this website you can make even your small crime incident a headline!!

    Why was this not even mentioned on national TV? Was their skin colour wrong? Instead we have been bombarded with Cwele drug bust and how many children Zuma has! I new this couple, may God be with their famalies in this dark hour!
