Police spokesperson Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe said the murder happened on Welgevonden farm.

“It is alleged that the deceased, Annette Kennealy, 51, who was staying with her employee, was attacked by unknown suspects at this farm. The family members tried to call her without success, until one of them went to investigate,” said Ngoepe.

“On arrival he found the deceased inside the house, lying in a pool of blood, with multiple stab wounds.”

Ngoepe said it was unclear why Kennealy was murdered or if anything had been stolen.

Police had earlier requested the employee to come forward and help with the investigation.
