WESTERN CAPE - In pursuit of Renée Jain’s killers, Provincial Organised Crime detectives conducted a tracing operation in Tulbach during the early hours of this morning. This operation led the detectives to two suspects, aged 21 and 23, who were both arrested at around 04:20 on charges of murder and aggravated robbery.

Renée Jain’s body was discovered in her residence in Wolseley on 26 March 2021, at around 23:45, after her neighbours suffered a house robbery perpetrated by her killers. The suspects fled the second crime scene in a Nissan X-Trail which they took during the house robbery. This vehicle and other stolen property were recovered by police the next day at the Wolseley cemetery. A post mortem revealed that Renée was assaulted and suffocated by her attackers.

The meticulous investigation by detectives and the gathering of forensic evidence uncovered the identities of the suspects, who are now scheduled to face the charges against them in the Wolseley Magistrate’s Court tomorrow.
