Vorster Susan 63 found murdered Boksburg lake Feb72011Her employer’s white Toyota Corolla, her handbag and the jewellery she wore were missing.

There was blood in her mother’s nose and ears when she identified her mother’s body in the mortuary,  said her daughter Edna du Plessis, 40. She and sister Tanya Vorster, 28 had to identify their mother in Germiston on Thursday.

Beeld journalist Jacques Steenkamp interviewed the distraught women shortly afterwards. Mrs Du Plessis said sister Tanya ‘collapsed when she recognised their mom. We expected the worst but were not prepared for what we saw. We are devastated,’ she was quoted as saying in Beeld.  Despite all these obvious  indications that Mrs Vorster had been a crime-victim, the police were ‘still awaiting the coroner’s confirmation whether she was murdered or had drowned,’  said warrant-officer André de Jager . http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Vermiste-se-lyk-gevind-Bloed-in-ore-neus-20110210
