In November 2007, he was ‘grateful that the hijackers missed him when they fired at him and that he could shoot two of them dead.,’ Marc Ishlove said at the time. Two days ago, the police-reservist and top shottist was shot dead - and he reportedly smiled as he lay dying, said police-reservist constable cliff Bond of the Honeydew police station about the death of his commanding officer, 60. He was shot dead during a wild-west gun-fight in Northcliff with a large black attack gang.

Two of these armed criminals were also shot dead after the police had chased the gang down and cornered them in their Mercedes Benz and five gunmen fired at them. It’s not yet known who had shot dead the two criminals yesterday.  It happened very close to a primary school - while children were playing tennis. Another policeman - a warrant officer whose name was not published - was shot in the right arm and is stable.

Ishlove hit the headlines in Nov 2007 after he had saved Dr Elmarie Wypkema, a gynecologist at Wilgeheuwel hospital, from a hijacking gang at the Fir Drive shopping centre They tried to grab her jewellery and her Porsche Carrera. Ishlove just happened to be sitting in the nearby Dam-a-tra-restaurant when he saw the attack on Wypkema - he stormed in, shuot dead one hijacker while the black man was sitting on top of Wypkema, demanding her ring. He then shot dead a second one behind the steering wheel of her car. Bond described Ishlove as an 'experienced shottist who played an inspiring role amongst reservists and police officers in developing their shooting skills as a sport.'

"We often spoke about death. I never thought he'd want to die within a fight. In the battle against criminals one would prefer to die whle you can fight back.'  Ishlove's two daughters Marcia and Juliet, who live overseas, were informed of their father's death this week.
Lt.col. Lungelo Dlamini said three of the suspects are expected in the Johannesburg magistrate's court Monday.

Marthie Grobler: gruesome farm-murder in George

George, South Africa. June 16 2011 - Mrs Marthie Grobler ’s murder this week has shaken up the residents of this  peaceful South African seaside town. The 59-year-old Afrikaans woman was found mutilated: stabbed to death, in her rental home at the farm farm Hoogekraal in Outeniqualand, Glentana after she had failed to show up for her monday-morning ride to work at 8am. She worked at Tiger Consumer Brands in George. http://www.georgeherald.com/news.aspx?id=7407

Grobler Marthie murdered Geroge June2011 GEORGE NEWS writes that her suspected killer, a 43-year-old man, is in custody. There might be more killers: the police are still examining all the forensic evidence. She was ‘badly mutilated’ said police capt Malcolm Pojie and farm owner Hannes Mostert, who found her body next to her bed on Monday.  “I blame this murder on the moral decay in our country,’ the shocked Mr Mostert commented during his itnerview with the George Herald’s journalist Christo Vermaak. Fornesic experts were quick to identify the suspects from fingerprints left behind at the scene. The Great-Brakrivier police launched a search for the man and arrested him in his home in gleniqua. The only thing of ‘value’ mising was a cellphone which was found in his possession. He is appearing in Mosselbay magistrate’s court Friday. Police located two suspected murder weapons with which Mrs Grobler was extensively tortured: a knife and a pair of scissors. They will still have to establish whether there were more than one murderer and whether the weapons were used on her. Mr Mostert said he last saw Mrs Grobler alive at 6pm on Friday-evening. For the last seven years she worked at Tiger Consumer Brands in the George industrial area and was a member of a ride-along club. When she failed to show on Monday club members contacted Mr Mostert to investigate – and he made his gruesome find.

He said the fifty-nine-year-old Mrs Grobler was a ‘very private person’.' Tiger Consumer Brands manageress Chantel Brink described her as ‘a very dear person. She ewas everyone’s mother Theresa’...Mrs Grobler had no children and her only sister, Mrs Judie Soekoe, died five years earlier. Her nephew Johan Soekoe said the funeral will be planned to take place from the Dutch Reformed Church blanco.

The murdered woman’s niece, Minette Soekoe—a former George Herald journalist now living in New Zealand – is reportedly heartbroken about her cruel death. She remembers her aunt with deep fondness. She told the Herald that ‘my aunt was always there when I needed her’.  She bought her the most wonderful children’s books, and when the girl was in hospital once, Mr Grobler gave her a Pinocchio-hanger which she treasures to this day.  Read
