The two suspects accused of killing Shannon Wasserfall last year, made another court appearance in Walvis Bay today (Monday).
The duo indicated that they will be applying for bail next month (June).
Azaan Madisia (28) and Steven Mulundu (22) were arrested on charges of murder and obstructing as well as defeating the course of justice last year. They appeared before magistrate Vicky Nicolaidis, who postponed the case to 27 July 2021 for further investigation.
The accused indicated that they will bring a formal bail application to the court from 21 to 23 June 2021.
According to state prosecutor Maggy Shiyagaya, good progress has been made in the investigation.
“Thus far, we have received a partially completed lab report, so we are still waiting on the full lab report.”
The accused are represented by Gilroy Kasper, who was absent at their proceedings on Monday.
Madisia was the number one suspect implicated in the disappearance of Shannon Wasserfall (22) who went missing on 10 April 2020 from Kuisebmond.
Months later, on 6 October 2020, Wasserfall’s remains of were found in a shallow grave in Walvis Bay after police received a tip off.
Wasserfall’s disappearance sparked countrywide protests, demanding justice for her under the #JusticeForShannon campaign.
Mulundu (Madisia’s brother) was arrested in November 2020 when 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.
