Cape Town - An apparent double murder in a shop has shocked the residents of Malmesbury.
Two women, who were believed to be sisters, were found dead at the back of a take-away shop called Eatsumore in the town’s main road at 7am on Tuesday.
Police said at this stage they could not say wether the two were related and could not give the cause of death nor say whether the two women were sexually assaulted.
One was found on a bed and the other was found a bit later, under the bed.
The crime scene was cordoned off by the police so that forensic experts could check the murder scene.
When the SAPS Forensics members entered the shop they found the body of another female partly hidden under a bed.
“Police cannot confirm that the two female bodies are related and whether they had been sexually assaulted - their identity also needs to be confirmed,” a spokesman said.
