Farm murder, woman (74) brutally murdered, 3 arrested, Ceres

A farm murder took place on Saturday 4 March 2023, at 04:00, on Papekuil farm in the Ceres-Karoo area, in the Western Cape Province of South Africa.

A farm worker heard a gunshot and went to investigate. He observed three attackers at the farm house.

The worker then ran to a neighbouring farm for assistance and the police were summoned.

The body of Christine Walters (74) was found outside her home with a gunshot wound to the head. Her hands were tied with steel wire and she had a belt around her neck.

Next to her body was a shotgun. It is presumed that Christine Walters attempted to fight back and was shot during the struggle.

Operations led to the arrest of one suspect, a former worker from the farm, later during the day.

Two other suspects were then arrested on Sunday 5 March 2023.

The attackers will appear in court on charges of murder and robbery.

There is no other information available at this stage.
