Suspects decision to return to Tembisa from Botswana backfires as 20 month old double murder cold case is reopened

The prime suspect in the brutal murder of his girlfriend and her six-year-old son in August 2022 has been captured by authorities.

The media reports that the suspect fled to neighbouring Botswana after the heinous crime.

Following the tragic incident, Lerato Sefekedi managed to evade capture and embarked on a daring escape, allegedly crossing the border into Botswana in a bid to evade justice.

For a period of time, he remained at large, with authorities in pursuit of the fugitive suspect.

However, Sefekedi’s attempt at freedom came to an abrupt end when he made the fateful decision to return to South Africa.

Concealing himself within the bustling streets of Tembisa, he likely believed that he had successfully evaded detection and the long arm of the law.

The apprehension of Lerato Sefekedi marks a significant breakthrough in the ongoing investigation into the tragic double homicide.

The capture of the prime suspect brings a sense of closure to the grieving family and the community affected by the senseless and violent crime.
