UPDATE: PORT ELIZABETH POLICE FOLLOWING GOOD LEADS IN ROBBERY AND MURDER OF ELDERLY WOMAN

Port Elizabeth police are searching for three male suspects after a 78 year-old woman died in a robbery on Thursday afternoon at her home in Lytham Street, Kabega Park in the city.

Police believe that the woman, who cannot be named yet, was suffocated to death by the suspects as she bore no physical injuries  - but that a post mortem would determine the exact cause of death.

The armed suspects also tied up the woman's 37-year old domestic worker with cable ties.

They then ransacked the home and fled with an entire safe as well as a laptop computer.
