The mother of a woman who was murdered together with her husband soon after their wedding has reportedly said she forgives the killers after two of the gunmen were wiped out.

According to Daily Voice, Shannon Fortune and Leonardo Fortune, both 31 at the time, were killed in December 2015 in Ocean View.

The couple had been married for just two weeks and were standing next to a staircase when gunmen rushed past them and opened fire.

Shannon was a cashier at Pick n Pay Longbeach Mall, while Leonardo was a well known fisherman in the area.

IOL reported on Sunday that Shannon’s mother, 64, who preferred to remain anonymous, had since decided to forgive the murderers after one of the main suspects was killed last month.

She in fact felt the case against the killers had totally collapsed after two of the gunmen were killed.

She said it was “pointless living with hatred in her heart, so she had chosen to forgive her daughter’s killers”, the report said.
