Forensic experts and detectives on Sunday combed the scene for hours with traumatised neighbours and relatives standing around.
A neighbour who asked not to be identified says they are horrified by the murder.
“This is a quiet community, this is shocking, I still cannot believe it,” he said
“I saw her on Saturrday afternoon last. She had some friends over.”
He described his murdered neighbour as “friendly” and “burly”, adding: “She wouldn’t let anyone get to her. It’s so strange because we didn’t hear anything, no struggle or a gunshot.
“The grandson, we understand, found her after climbing through the bathroom window.
“I left for church before 10am and I walked past her flat and I didn’t hear or see anything.
“When I came back from church I saw the police vans and they said she had been murdered.
“The family is so shaken they are not in a state to speak.”
Police spokesperson Captain FC Van Wyk said:
“The motive for the killing is unknown at this stage. A post-mortem will be held to establish the exact cause of death.”
