South Africa – Two suspects have been arrested after the body of a 55-year-old male nurse was found murdered in his home in Nolloth Crescent, Blackheath.
Gregory Paulse, who worked at Mfuleni Clinic, was stabbed with scissors and lying face down in a pool of his own blood on his bedroom floor.
Ricardo, who lives in Bishop Lavis, said: “They came in, they took advantage of him and he crawled away from them to seek assistance out by the patio door.
“He never made it. He had a towel pressed to one wound on his side.
“There were bloody prints from the lounge to the bedroom. My brother was murdered.
“He loved people and was a nurse for many years. I cannot imagine what he endured when they killed him.”
Police spokesperson, Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana, confirms: “A case of murder has been opened for investigation by the Kleinvlei police after the body of a 55-year-old man was found on Wednesday in his Blackheath home.
“The body of the victim was found by the neighbours. Two suspects, both aged 27, were arrested, and once charged they will appear in the Blue Downs Magistrates’ Court.”
