An assistant station commissioner of a satellite police station in a
small central Karoo village in the Western Cape has apparently killed
his girlfriend before turning the gun on himself.

The bodies of Inspector Bennie Paulse, 43, the commander of the
Nelspoort satellite police station, and his 25-year-old girlfriend,
Valmarie Schroeder, were found 36km away from Willowmore on Sunday,
according to the police.

Spokesperson Malcom Pojie said: "Inspector Paulse left Beaufort West
on Saturday to attend to a complaint at Nelspoort."

Pojie said Paulse had called Schroeder and had gone to fetch her at
her home in Rustdene, Beaufort West, and later the police had received
calls that he had threatened to end their lives.

Paulse and Schroeder were found with bullet wounds to their heads in
the police vehicle he was using.
