An 86-year-old nun was reportedly gang-raped before being murdered in her bedroom at a South African missionary.
Gertrud Tiefenbacher's hands had been tied with a typewriter cord and a towel placed over a face, say local police.
Her body was found by other nuns at the Sacred Heart Missionary in Ixopo, a small town 85 miles south-west of Durban.
Police in KwaZulu-Natal are waiting for the results of forensic tests to confirm that Sister Gertrud was sexually assaulted.
They say she was suffocated but they are unsure how many men attacked her. A small sum of money - thought to be in euros - had been stolen from her room.
The victim's friend Betty Firmstone, 85, told South Africa's Daily News: 'I met Sister in 1952 when I started teaching at a school attached to the mission. We worked very closely together. She loved her work with children.
'This really was an act of savagery against a gentle, caring soul.'
Sister Gertrud had lived at the missionary for 60 years after moving to South Africa from her native Austria.

Damn those Amish !
As bad as apartheid was....
Sometimes you just don’t have the words. Now is one of those times for me.
May she rest in peace.
The reaction from the White House will be: “the perpetrators were not muslim, nor were they black.”
Wait. Let me guess: some of Holder’s “people” (using the term very loosely)?
Sometimes animals will just act like animals.
I guess it’s that simple...sigh...I cant even think up the punishment needed
A nun was raped and murdered and you talk about how bad apartheid was?
” ... it doesn’t make sense evolution-wise .... “
We’re dealing with something that is evil and sub-human.
Sick and evil. RIP.
The perps need to be locked up.
Preferably with each other
that should work out well for them....
It’s hard to understand the power angle if you’re not a rapist, thank God I cant. But you are right. I have read that a lot.
And they are sub human and evil too,
That don’t need to be locked up. They need to be buried.
Definitely evil, very clearly a demonic act.
Yeah, I’ll never understand the power part too. I remember studying things like that when I was in college and from what I’ve studied, it is a form of over powering another person, the ultimate form of doing so short of pure murder. Imposing one’s will and control on an unwilling person is pure evil.
I read a theory once that Holder’s people rape elderly white women because they lived in a time when no white woman would have anything to do with a black man.
Well, locking them up together is a good idea. Let them finish themselves off.
