Cape Town - Police are asking for public assistance in identifying and locating a 28-year-old male in connection with the murder of a Claremont mother in October.
Anzunette du Plessis was found stabbed to death inside her house on October 4. A short while later, police arrested three suspects who were found carrying stolen goods from Du Plessis’ property. A fourth suspect escaped.
Moegamat Armien Salie, one of the suspects who had worked on the roof at Du Plessis’ house, admitted to stabbing her several times before slitting her throat.
Salie appeared alongside Warren van Rooyen, 28, and Dudley Boesak, 32, both of Hanover Park, at the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on October 9.
