Johannesburg - An elderly couple was murdered in Bonearo Park, east of Johannesburg, during an apparent house robbery, it was reported on Monday.
The 65-year-old woman was stabbed in the back before her throat was slit, while the 70-year-old man was found dead with a plastic bag over the head, Beeld newspaper reported.
Police spokesperson Warrant Officer Cobus Halloway said it was suspected that Percy and Noellene Whitmore were overpowered on Thursday morning after returning from a church meeting.
"The house was in total chaos," said Halloway.
So far, only a DVD player seemed to have been taken from the house.
No arrests had been made.

| Ederik - August 8, 2011 at 08:25 No, this is not reverse apartheid. With apartheid the whites did not go into black areas to murder elderly blacks. This is a systematic killing of whites, thanks to Malema. Abnd his superiors just sit back and laugh....

Ederik - August 8, 2011 at 08:31 Report comment Please do not compare these barbarians with animals. Animals are wonderful beings and do not do these barbaric things.
ratex - August 8, 2011 at 08:24 Report comment Shoot to kill, then its your word against a corpse. Since the 94 freedom thingy happened, criminals have very little if any regard for life. So why should we, the victims, treat them, the criminals with any respect? Yes 2 wrongs don't make a right, but they will make me feel much better. The sooner we bring back the death penalty the better, scumbags like this do not have the right to live.

They were white elderly soft targets and b. the "untermensch" were too lazy to work and would rather steal. Its the African way of doing things. You people are so bloody stupid crying foul the whole time you miss the reality of life in SA.

This was a racist, opportunistic crime by black cowards. That's why they attack in gangs and only old people. Cowards !!!

Crime has no colour. Partly true for VICTIMS of all COLOURS, but we all know the colour of the killers, rapists & thieves that are ruining this country, along with this weak willed government that is continually plundering & raping this country themselves, not to mention being dictated to by a " youthfull idiot & his cronies. "
Oh, watch the liberals come out & say, " well they are the majority, so therefore it is natural that they are responsible for the majority of the crime committed. " As if that makes it all perfectly natural & easier to accept.
Time to turn on the lights SA, we are suffering under this " blackout. "

2 GinSA1 - August 8, 2011 at 08:32 Report comment http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/death-penalty-in-south-africa-referendum.html - When is enough going to be enough, from the side of the law-abiding citizens of this country? If this happened to your family, would you want the criminals to still enjoy life? Our Government needs to listen the the citizens of this country. We need to at least put pressure on them to hold a Referendum on the reinstatement of the death penalty.
