Cape Town – Wolseley police in the Western Cape arrested two suspects aged, 21 and 23, on Wednesday in connection with the murder of the Cape Union Mart executive, Renée Jain, who was killed on March, 26, 2021.
Police said in a statement that Jain’s body was discovered in her Wolseley home at around 23:45.
