Suspect to appear in court for murder


Hawks Serious Organised Crime Investigation team, together with SAPS Flying Squad and SAPS 10111, all based in Bloemfontein, arrested a 42-year-old suspect on Tuesday 4 October. She was allegedly being sought for a murder.

According to the spokesperson of the Hawks in the Free State, Christopher Singo, her arrest comes after Interpol issued a warrant of arrest against her regarding the murder of Eoin O’ Connor and Anthony Keegan, who were found murdered in Ireland in 2014.

“After the murder of the deceased persons, the suspect fled the country,” says Singo.

“Information was received on Wednesday 28 September 2022 about the suspect being located in Bloemfontein. The police then followed up on the information and arrested the suspect in Pellissier, Bloemfontein,” says Singo.

The suspect is expected to appear before the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court today (5 October 2022.)
