The investigation into the murder of a day mother and a five-month-old baby boy in Delmas was still continuing, Mpumalanga police said on Monday.
“There have been no developments and no arrests yet,” Lt-Col Leonard Hlathi said.
The woman, 66, and baby were found strangled in her home last Wednesday.
The day mother's body was found under a carpet in an outside room. The baby was found under a bed in the main house. The baby's mother repeatedly phoned the woman's house and became concerned when there was no answer.
The motive for the murders was not known. Last week, Beeld newspaper named the day mother as Margrietha de Goede.
The Afrikaans daily reported that both the baby and De Goede would be buried at a funeral service in the town on Monday morning. - Sapa
