Susanne Keil, a famous fitness model in Johannesburg was shot and killed in her home by robbers, Sunday, (July, 24).
Keil’s friend Ziad Nour told TMG Digital on Monday, “It was at around 8pm. She was sitting in the lounge watching TV with her friend. Between four to five guys broke the sliding door and got into the house.”
“She started screaming and shouting at them. They shot her,” Keil added.
Keil’s companion whom she was watching TV with made a run for the top floor of the apartment when the robbers caught up with him and had him bound.
The robbers began moving through the house, tossing and turning the place in a bid to get valuables to pilfer.
Nour stated, “The robbers took iPads, valuable electronics and some jewelry. This is a senseless killing. We hope they will find the people.”
Nour said Keil was “one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met. She was always happy with the most smallest things. Her death is a loss to our society. She helped a lot of people to get healthy.”
The police are yet to comment on their findings so far just as Keil’s family haven’t made a formal statement on her death.
Friends of Keil have been sharing an outpouring of messages just as Marco Rossi wrote:
