Elderly couple found dead with stab wounds

An elderly couple from Boksburg, who lived together for 15 years, were found dead with stab wounds in their home on Wednesday, September 09, 2015.

The 73-year-old man and 63-year-old woman were presumably attacked on Tuesday night.

Their names have not been released as some family members have not yet been informed.

“Both sustained stab wounds to the chest,” Lieutenant Juanita Coetzer, police spokesperson in Boksburg said.

The couple’s Toyota Tazz disappeared.

Wednesday afternoon, police detectives still searched the neat house in a quiet street, in Comet, in the north of Boksburg, for clues.

In the yard is a fishing boat with the words Silver & Gold fixed to it.

Coetzer said the couple’s son in law found them.

He apparently called to the house, but no one answered.

“According to the son in law, it was not normal that they did not answer,” she said. He then went to investigate.
