Sonlandpark murder shocks community


A 51-year-old man shot his 67-year-old mother-in-law and 13-year-old boy, and then turned the gun on himself.

According to Captain Fikile Funda, spokesman for Vereeniging SAPS, the police were called to the scene at 17:30 on Sunday night at Oosthuizen Street in Sonland Park.

The sister of the deceased man said she came to see how her brother was doing after he had earlier complained about pain in his chest.

When she arrived at the house, the gate was locked and she had to climb over the gate. She then came across the three lifeless bodies.

The firearm was found next to the 51-year-old man’s body. His mother-in-law was found in the bathroom while his son’s body was found in the room where they had been shot and killed.
