Who killed the two lovers?

Well, the first prime suspect in the murder of the couple is the hotel owner, Pretorius. He is the hotel owner where the two lovers lodged and he owes them the duty of care to ensure that they are safe. The couple stay, eat and sleep in the hotel. It means that the hotel owner is also responsible to ensure that the food they are served is healthy and safe from harm.

Now that they died from poisoning, the hotel owner should be held responsible just as the police is doing already. He should either provide answers to who poisoned the two lovers to death or he would be seen as the mastermind. He knows something about the murder. That is the more reason the police picked him up after their long investigation and charged him with the murder of the two lovers who are supposed to get married soon. It is so sad that the dreams of two young lovers to become husband and wife was cut short just like that.
