A group of people allegedly threatened to kill the boyfriend of murder victim Shannon Wasserfall in Kuisebmond on Friday.

It is alleged that the main suspect, a 25-year-old man, is related to the late Wasserfall’s father.

The suspect and his friends reportedly arrived at the complainant’s home and demanded to talk to him.

When the complainant refused to open the door, the suspect allegedly tried to break down the door but could not enter the house.

The suspect was carrying a machete and allegedly threatened to kill Wasserfall’s boyfriend. The machete was confiscated and the suspect was arrested.

Rapes continue unabated
