Vanessa Dreyer was brutally murdered last night in front of her husband and two young children, in the Avenues in Edenvale, during an attempted hijacking by bravo males in a White Mercedes-Benz.
Preliminary reports from the cluster suggest that an AK47 was used by the perpetrators.
Husband reportedly returned fire causing suspects to flee the scene.

This young lady is Vanessa Dreyer. She is the wife of my nephew Quinton.
They were visiting Vanessa’s sister last night, and as they were pulling out of the driveway on their way home, four black men stormed the car. One started shooting into the car, hitting Vanessa in the heart.
Quinton managed to pull out his gun and shoot back, causing the criminals to flee the scene.
He rushed her to hospital, but the medical staff were unable to save her life. Their two boys were in the car with them, but nobody else got physically hurt. I am sure the emotional scars will stay for a lifetime, however.
Our thoughts are with Quinton, my sister Janette, their two boys, and Vanessa’s family. We have no words to describe our shock and horror, and our deep sadness for your loss. Vanessa, you were a wonderful wife to Quinton, and an amazing mother to your two boys. Rest in peace.
