Police appeal for info on Kaalfontein double murder
No new information has been uncovered since the car was found abandoned with two bodies inside.
JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng police have sent out another plea to Midrand residents who could help solve a double murder reported in Kaalfontein.
On New Year's Day community members alerted officers to a car which was thought to be abandoned in the area.
Inside the vehicle officials found a man and a woman aged between 25 and 30 with several gunshot wounds.
Some of the vehicle's doors were found open leading authorities to believe there may have been more than two people in the car at the time of the shooting.
The police's Tsekiso Mofokeng has called for public assistance as no new information has yet been uncovered.
"Nothing was found, we are still investigating how this has happened. We are appealing to the community in Ivory Park for those with information to come forward and assist us in finding out what happened."
At the same time the International Relations Department says the South African embassy in the capital of Mauritius is monitoring the developments of an investigation regarding the death of a Fourways woman.
Lee-Ann Palmarozza's body was found in a pool in a luxury resort in that country last week.
Authorities say they are treating the matter as a possible murder as she was found with multiple bruises on her body.
Palmarozza went to Mauritius to visit her boyfriend, also from Johannesburg on Boxing Day.
The department's Nelson Kgwete says, "We are providing consular assistance to the family and we will assist them in repatriating the remains. We have sent our sincere condolences to the family of the woman."
