Glen Rafferty and his wife, Vida Homann Rafferty were brutally murdered on their farm in Normandien, Kwazulu-Natal.
The double murder took place on 29 August at 22H00. It appeared that they were attacked when they arrived home from visiting friends in Newcastle.
Both were shot numerous times by an unknown number of attackers. One of their dogs were also shot in the attack.
Glen and Vida were the parents of Nathan Rafferty and his wife Tamsyn.
Tamsyn is the founder and previous owner of Heritage Properties in Secunda.
We, at The Bulletin, will remember Glen and Vida as kind and loving people! We would like to express our deepest sympathy to Nathan, Tamsyn and their family.
It appeared that the attackers gained entry through the back door and waited for the couple to return, shooting and killing them as they did so.
The bodies of the couple were discovered when a routine farm patrol patrolled the farm at 05H25 on Sunday morning.
Both were lying in front of the front door of the farmhouse.

It is not clear what valuables were taken but the house was ransacked. The only item that seems to be taken appears to be a DVR.
This attack raises questions as to the motive of these type of attacks.
The attackers fled in the couple’s vehicle that was later recovered near Ladysmith.
