The Bonteheuwel woman and mother of two, Lizelle “Zellie” Lucas, had reportedly been shot execution-style on a football pitch behind the classrooms of the high school.
Mrs Lucas’ oldest daughter is a 9th Grader at the same school.
The reports reveal that the motive behind the murder is yet to be ascertained, with a police source saying:
“She was shot in the back of her head on the school ground. Her boyfriend, or ex-boyfriend, who is also a member of the Junky Funky Kids gang, was last seen with her. We are not sure if it was gang related.”
Lucas’s mother, Linda, 48, revealed that she had seen her daughter last at about 6pm on Sunday evening.
Linda had been on her way to the murder scene when she had received the devastating news from neighbours.
“Zellie’s daughter left a little late this (Monday) morning, so when I heard about the body at the school, I was worried it could have been anyone’s child.
“Just as I left my house, people came to me and said it was Zellie. The last time I saw her was when she said she was going to her cousin to get food.”
Chaos has reportedly followed at the scene when Lucas’s angry sister attacked an unidentified woman, who had allegedly been seen with Lucas on Sunday night.
The Police had intervened putting a stop to the fight, with the unidentified woman kept in police custody mostly for her own safety.
Linda added that her daughter had been a drinker, but was unable to prove that she used drugs.
“When she didn’t come home on Sunday night I was worried,” Linda added.
Police spokesman, Lieutenant Colonel Andrè Traut, revealed that there have been no arrest in connection with the case.
