Gauteng police arrest man in linked to Heather Petersen murder


JOHANNESBURG, October 15 – A 32-year-old man, allegedly linked to the murder of Heather Peterson of Westbury has been arrested, Gauteng police said on Monday.

Spokesperson Captain Kay Makhubele said police acted on information they got received from community members and arrested the man at a house in Krugersdorp on Sunday.

Petersen was shot dead last month when she and her niece were caught in the crossfire between alleged rival gangsters while they were walking home.

“The suspect is due to appear at the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court soon,” said Makhubele.

He said members of the public were encouraged to continue to report crime to police
