THE POLICE have identified two potential suspects 10 months after a deadly shooting in the up-market Cape Town suburb of Constantia that left four Bulgarian nationals dead.

On May 25 last year, the police were called out to Evergreen Lane where they found the bodies of two women and two men, aged between 40 and 50.

The bodies were found in a vehicle, which had rammed through the gate of a property.

At the time, the police said the motive for the murders was yet to be determined.

On Friday, the Western Cape Provincial Serious and Violent Crimes Unit released photos taken from CCTV footage of two persons of interest who might be able to shed light on the 
massacre.

Police spokesperson Anelisiwe Manyana says the two men were seen driving the same VW Golf GTI that was seen at the crime scene.

Manyana explained: “According to reports, four people were shot and killed in Constantia and six suspects were spotted fleeing the scene in a blue Hyundai and white VW Golf GTI. Later, two people were seen under a bridge on the N1 driving a white VW Passat and the same VW Golf GTI from the scene.”

The killings, according to Ward 62 councillor Emile
Langenhoven, are believed to have been a hit.

“That incident in itself was quite isolated, it was so out of the norm. They called it an assassination, it was a hit of a known Bulgarian gangster. We haven’t seen anything of that nature,” said Langenhoven.
