Detectives at the South African Police Service (SAPS) are appealing to the local community to assist them in tracing a suspect or multiple suspects who are responsible for the cruel and callous killing of a 55-year-old blind woman.

At about 9:00 on Tuesday morning 6 October, police were summoned to a house in Mdledle Street after the caregiver and the deceased’s boyfriend found the woman lying dead on the bedroom floor.

“It is alleged that the caregiver had left Miss Thobeka Goxa at about 16:00 yesterday afternoon [Monday] 5 October 2020. The house was locked, however, when she returned with Goxa’s boyfriend this morning [Tuesday], they found the kitchen door and the security gate wide open. There were no signs of forced entry into the house,” said Colonel Priscilla Naidu.

Goxa was found lying on the bedroom floor with stab wounds on [the] left side of her chest.

“At this stage, it is not clear if anything was taken from the house. It is further alleged that Miss Goxa would not open the door to anyone unless she recognised their voices,” said Naidu.

Police are urging the community to assist them by exposing this/these heartless criminal/s that are responsible for the death of Goxa.

A case of murder is under investigation and anyone who can assist in the investigation is asked to contact the police.
