Last updated on September 4, 2019

Police have arrest­ed a sus­pect relat­ing to a mur­der of an elder­ly woman found with mul­ti­ple injuries lay­ing out­side her sub­ur­ban house in Mod­i­molle, Limpopo.

Limpopo Police Spokesper­son, Colonel Moat­she Ngoepe con­firmed cops arrest­ed the 51-year-old sus­pect at Reabetswe vil­lage in Wit­poort, Ga-Sele­ka out­side Lep­ha­lale on Mon­day morn­ing.

Ngoepe said the sus­pect was found hid­ing at his sister’s house whom police are inves­ti­gat­ing for a pos­si­ble charge of har­bour­ing a fugi­tive.

The arrest fol­lows an inci­dent which occurred on August 23, 2019 when police received a report about a woman found crit­i­cal­ly injured at her home.

“Police along with Emer­gency ser­vices quick­ly respond­ed to the scene. Upon arrival, they found the woman lying at her yard with mul­ti­ple injuries all over her body and she was cer­ti­fied dead on the scene by the Para­medics,” said Ngoepe.

Police iden­ti­fied the deceased as Trudy Grabe.

Police have ear­li­er released a state­ment that pre­lim­i­nary inves­ti­ga­tions shows that one of the deceased’s ex-employ­ee left the house on the same day before cops found the body of a woman lying in the yard.

The sus­pect will appear before the Mod­i­molle Mag­is­trate’s Court soon on a charge of mur­der.

The Act­ing Limpopo Police Com­mis­sion­er, Major Gen­er­al Samuel Man­ala has com­mend­ed the Detec­tives in Mod­i­molle for their swift reac­tion in this mat­ter which led to the arrest of this sus­pect.

“Mem­bers of the com­mu­ni­ty are once more com­pli­ment­ed for the role they played in sup­ply­ing the Police with a qual­i­ty and reli­able infor­ma­tion until police arrest­ed the sus­pect,” added Gen­er­al Man­ala.

Ngoepe said police inves­ti­ga­tions are still con­tin­u­ing.
