A Bloemfontein man, his wife and their daughter were shot dead before
being burnt in their car, according to the police.
Louis Badenhorst (82), his 63-year-old wife Henrietta and their daughter
Mihanna had arrived at a guesthouse in Clarens on Friday for a holiday.
The three were returning from a nearby shop on Saturday when a man who
worked at the guesthouse allegedly shot them.
The killer was apparently assisted by another man to help put the three
corpses into the family's car before driving to a township about 3km
away, where the victims' vehicle was doused with petrol and set alight.
The bodies burnt inside the car, Free State police said.
The motive for the killing was not known.
The suspect and two alleged accomplices were arrested yesterday, the
police said. - Sapa
