Family church cannot bury murdered Courtney Pieters

Family church cannot bury murdered Courtney Pieters

The family of murdered three-year-old Courtney Pieters were told that the toddler's funeral cannot be held at the church they belonged to, with leaders saying the church is not available.

It is believed that Courtney's alleged killer's father is the head pastor at the church. 

Church leaders told the family that the funeral cannot be held at the Old Apostolic Church in Matroosfontein. 

The family was then forced to find an alternative church for her funeral.

Courtney's mother, Juanita Pieters, said that she was told that the church cannot bury the three-year-old. 

"The reason Courtney will be buried from the Adriaanse Hall is because the church said they will be doing preparations for the Sealing Service happening on Sunday. The church is apparently not available this Saturday as they get it ready for this special service that we have," the mother told the Daily Voice

Courtney's funeral will now take place at Adriaanse Community Hall next to Clarke Estate on Saturday.
