R100k reward for information on murder of pregnant woman at popular nature reserve.

Cape Town – Two years after Karen Turner was killed at a chalet at the Hluleka Nature Reserve on the Wild Coast, police have offered a R100 000 prize for data that could prompt a capture 

The 33-year-old Karen, who was almost three months' pregnant at that point, was holidaying with her significant other Matthew and their two-year-old child at the Eastern Cape nature save, around 30km south of Port St Johns, in September 2019. 

Locum instructor Karen, who had commended her birthday the other day, kicked the bucket from a few cut injuries at the location of the crime after two men had entered the KwaZulu-Natal family's chalet. Her significant other supported many stomach cut injuries and was hurried to clinic for medical procedure in Mthatha. 

Matthew, who had companions remaining in a chalet nearby, told relatives after medical procedure that he had seen two interlopers go into their room, Algoa FM announced. The couple's child, who was with them in the chalet, was actually safe.

''Notwithstanding, endeavors to follow the suspects have neglected to deliver any certain outcomes, henceforth the monetary compensation is presented to any person who can give data that will prompt the capture and effective indictment of the suspects.''
