Big news in my hometown about this. Something went terribly wrong in this one and hope we'll get to the thick of it.

Boland family in axe murder horror

Cape Town - A 16-year-old girl is fighting for her life and her parents and brother are dead after they were attacked in their picturesque De Zalze Golf Estate home in Stellenbosch early on Tuesday.

A blood-spattered axe was found in the house. A 20-year-old man, with scratches running down his arms, is being questioned in connection with the attack.

There was no sign of a break-in.

Martin van Breda, 55, his wife Teresa, 54, and their three children Rudi, 22, Henri, 20 and Marli, 16, recently returned to South Africa from Perth in Australia.

Neighbours in the upmarket development, where houses can fetch around R12 million, speculated that they were no longer safe in security estates, but the estate’s homeowner’s association has called the attack “an isolated incident, confined to the scene of the crime”.

Chairman Eben Potgieter said he had checked with security and there were no signs of a break-in. He wanted to allay widespread fears that this was a home invasion.

“But we refuse to speculate on what happened. This is all we know so far.”

His expression was grim as he recounted Tuesday’s event. At around 7.30am, a police car arrived at the estate’s front gate to check on the family’s home.

There was no indication by Tuesday night who had called the police.

But Potgieter said a domestic worker, busy at the house opposite, had spotted a man on the phone. She claimed there was blood on his arms.

Security escorted the police through to the house where the bodies were found.

“We haven’t been inside so I cannot say where they were found.”

An ambulance was quickly called in, and Marli – who according to sources was barely alive after sustaining multiple wounds to her head – was rushed to hospital.

Emergency medical services spokesman Robert Daniels said it was clear the victims had been killed with an axe.

“What I can say is they were not shot, the patients were axed. The daughter was rushed to hospital with severe head trauma and a severed jugular,” Daniels said. “The other son had minor bruises on his arms. He was treated at the scene.”

Stellenbosch Medi-Clinic spokeswoman Carla Hanekom said: “We treated one patient, who is in a critical condition and is going to be transferred to Vergelegen Private Hospital. A neurosurgeon has been attending to the patient.”



On Tuesday close friend Alexander Boshoff, 19, described the Van Bredas as “a perfect family”.

Speaking outside the Medi-Clinic after hearing news of the incident, Boshoff said: “Our families often spent holidays together. We have known each other for years. Martin was one of my dad’s business partners at Curro Holdings.”

Curro Holdings owned a number of private schools in South Africa.

“They just moved back from Australia and had been back since June last year.”

Boshoff, who hails from Johannesburg but is currently studying BAccLLB at Stellenbosch University, said the Van Bredas were a “typical happy family”. “They moved around a lot because of Martin’s business, but Henri and Rudi never really complained. They were like a perfect family,” he said.

Neighbour Jasmien Sevenster, one of many who had congregated in Goske Street on Tuesday afternoon, joining the throng of media behind a barrier of fluttering yellow police tape, said: “They hadn’t been living here very long.”

The sun beamed down on the quaint neighbourhood, a collection of white houses against a backdrop of golf greens and blue skies.

“It’s scary, you know, that it happened just on our doorstep,” Sevenster said as she watched investigators move a bag of evidence to an unmarked van parked in front of the house.

One resident said he had been driving down a road in the neighbourhood at 2am on Tuesday but had heard nothing.

All police will say is they are investigating a triple homicide.

“At this stage there have been no arrests,” said police spokesman Andre Traut.

Must be. I still try to figure out how can any person be that cruel. Maybe he drank to much Kangeroe blood in Aus, smoke Kangeroe hair.

If it's Tik like some are saying then that would make some sense. Years ago my own housemate (and his friends) robbed me and another housemate at knife point after he went on Tik one day. The next day he wandered into the house like nothing happened.

Would be awful if it's the son again, like in that Griekwastad case

If it is the son (not the first time this sorta thing happened) I really don't understand how you can murder your parents and your siblings in such a cruel way.

A precedent has been set over here with that muderous plum David Bane :(( The privy council recommends that this son of a bitch deserves at least 2 million bucks in reparations :thumbdown:

The little fudge from Griekwastad (who murdered his parents and raped and killed his sister) will probably also get something near that amount, if they leave it in trust for his future children.

Trance, I don't think you are supposed to understand certain things. Not in the sense, Yeah I can see where the fella's coming from.

If, say, a person had been grotesquely abused by - or with the tacit acceptance of - his /her family and saw no way out, then yes; a degree of understanding would be reasonably available. But in other circumstances where the causes are entirely locked up inside the killer's head, there is no reasonable way to gain any form of true understanding.

Yes, I think that is the sad part of this story. Nobody ever thinks of how this kind of stuff effects the common man.

Of course he's spot on, that's the point - the article had made it perfectly clear already

Well we already told them to fudge off, so not sure what their recommendation means.

And fudge David Bain and fudge the attention seeking jury that freed him.

I wonder what the Aus Times headline will read IF it was the son after the first one was having a right go at SA and them moving from the safety of AUS was the reason this happened...

Puzzle is starting to get together.

http://www.eikestadnuus.co.za/224726/ne ... -met-fisio

Eikestad Nuus
Marli van Breda, die 16-jarige oorlewende van 'n bylaanval op haar gesin by die luukse De Zalze-gholflandgoed, gaan binnekort met fisioterapie begin.

Só het André van Breda, broer van die oorlede Martin (55), ná die gedenkdiens by NG Moreletapark in Pretoria aan die pers vertel.

Die liggame van Martin, Teresa (54) en hul oudste kind, Rudi (22), is Dinsdagoggend in hul huis in De Zalze gevind.

André sê Carla Hanekom, 'n Mediclinic-woordvoerder, het hom vanoggend ingelig dat Marli na 'n groter kamer geskuif gaan word sodat sy met fisioterapie kan begin.

Henri (20), hul jonste seun wat tans deur familie op Stellenbosch gehuisves word, het die gedenkdiens bygewoon.

Verskeie gerugte het die ronde gedoen dat hy nie daar sou wees nie.

Henri het nooddienste na die toneel ontbied. Hy het geringe beserings opgedoen.

Die program by die gedenkdiens is die oorledenes op Maandag 26 Januarie oorlede. Henri se noodoproep is egter Dinsdag 27 Januarie voor 08:00 gemaak.
