New information has come to light of the involvement of other possible suspects in the murder of Shannon Wasserfall.

This emerged after Azaan Madisia and her brother Steven Mulundu made another appearance in the Walvis Bay court.

Appearing before magistrate Vicky Nicolaidis, the accused stated that they have applied for legal aid and are also ready to plea. Public prosecutor Maggy Shiyagaya said that the state is not in a position to move forward with the accused for purposes of a section 119 plea.

“New information has come to light regarding possible outstanding suspects. We will hopefully get confirmation thereof by mid-November.”

Magistrate Nicolaidis informed the accused that should legal representation be provided in the interim, their representative could consult with them and remanded the matter to 8 November.

Dennis Wasserfall, uncle of the late Shannon, stated in a Facebook post, “at the location Kandari was brutally murdered, unknown DNA was recently discovered, which raises the question, who else was involved?”

Dennis said that it has been a year and four days since Azaan Madisia confessed to the murder. “Slowly, as the story progresses, it seems that she keeps purposely leaving important details out. As a family, all we have wanted since 10 April 2020 is answers.”

He accused Azaan of lying and manipulating proceedings since the beginning of Shannon’s case. “There were times none of us as a family had hope and all we could do was rely on our faith. All we want is truthful answers from the perpetrators. They’ve taken our daughter away from us; the least they can do is tell us who the third person is. There will not be peace until we have our answers. There will not be silence.”

Madisia was the number one suspect implicated in the disappearance of Shannon (22), who went missing on 10 April 2020 from Kuisebmond. Months later, on 6 October 2020, her remains were found in a shallow grave in Walvis Bay after the police received a tip off. Mulundu was arrested in November 2020 after he surrendered himself to the police, stating that he allegedly assisted Madisia in disposing of Shannon’s body. Both accused have been in custody since last year.
