Lorraine Shepeard 76, brutally beaten to death, Beverley Groves, Port Elizabeth – 26 Jan 2013
April 17 2014 – Why are the murderers of my mother not found 15 months later?

A year+ after the murder of Mrs Lorraine Shepeard, 76 in her Beverley Groves, Port Elizabeth home,
no-one has been arrested. Her daughter Dawn Rogers told ‘Die Burger’ Afrikaans daily on April 17 2014 that it is ‘difficult to accept that my mom was murdered just for a few jewellery trinkets’.

Fifteen months later and Mrs Rogers feels that the SAPS are making no attempt to find her murderers.
‘They promised me that they would find her killers. Fifteen months have gone by and I have heard nothing from them.’ Mrs Shepheard was found murdered on 26 January 2013 in her flat just 30 metres away from Mrs Rogers’ apartment. She looked as if she was brutally beaten..

Mrs Rogers was quoted as saying that even a R25,000 reward offer for the arrest and conviction of the killers produced no results…
