The police’s investigation into the deaths of Heidi Scheepers (35) and her two young children after their vehicle ended up in the sea at Voëlklip near Herolds Bay last year, is “at a sensitive stage”.
Scheepers and her two-year-old son, Hugo, drowned according to the post-mortem examinations when their vehicle ended up in the sea in October.
The six-year-old Cozette’s body was never found.
Pojie explained this morning that the investigation into Scheepers and the children’s deaths had not yet been completed at this stage. Once investigated, the investigation will be referred to the Public Prosecution Directorate, which in turn will decide whether or not to prosecute anyone.
“No one has yet been arrested in connection with the incident.”
NewsliteSA previously reported an extensive search was launched last year after Scheepers and her children were last seen alive in Herolds Bay at around 18:00 on the day in question around October 18. They drove past the family’s shop, the Herolds Bay Cafe.
Her husband, Ettienne, reported his family missing shortly thereafter.
ŉ Gray Volkswagen Caravelle, similar to the one with which Scheepers and her two children disappeared, was found next to the rocks at Voëlklip a few days later, after which Hugo’s body was found in the sea shortly afterwards.
Heidi’s body was found a few days later in the sea at Herolds Bay.
