A farm murder took place on 4 August 2020, just before 06:00, in Moonlight Crescent, at Elandsfontein agricultural holdings, in the Gauteng province of South Africa. Three attackers overpowered a family in their home. They the shot mother in the chest, shot the daughter in the upper leg and shot the father, who tried to stop the attack, in the head.
