About Andries van den Berg

Andries van den Berg (1928 - 2010)

Brief overview:

Andries (82) lived on his Knoppieshoogte smallholding, Rikasrust, Randfontein. His body was found at 19h00 on 4th November 2010 on his bedroom floor by his son Joë (50). Andries's hands and feet were tied up, with praying hands clutched to his chest. He was dressed in his pajama pants. His head and face, which had been crushed, was covered with a jacket. Andries's family had begged the deeply religious man to move to town, but because of his love for his environment he refused to move when wife Elaine (75), moved to Joë's house in town four years prior for her own safety. The community offered a R5,000 reward for tips leading to the killers' conviction. SAPS captain Appel Ernst said investigating officer Warrant Officer Karen Nel could be contacted at 011 278 8100.
