During the investigation, the police arrested two suspects in the murder case of a male nurse of Mfuleni Clinic, Gregory Paulse.
The victim’s body was found in his own bedroom face down on the floor with scissors in his back.
As the victim’s relatives say, no signs of breaking or entering were found, only empty bottles and glasses . By all indications, the victim was familiar with his killers.
His youngest brother, Ricardo, 44, said that he was called to the accident scene when his brother’s neighbour had found the body. Also, the car of the murdered was not there.
“They came in, they took advantage of him and he crawled away from them to seek assistance out by the patio door,” Gregory’s brother said.
According to the brother, Gregory never made it. He had a towel pressed to one wound on his side and he remained lying in this position.
“There were bloody prints from the lounge to the bedroom. My brother was murdered.” Ricardo added.
