Suspect arrested for Knysna murders
Police have made a breakthrough in the investigation of the murders of two young Knysna women who were killed in the space of a few weeks. Spokesperson Eddie Cronjé says the 23-year-old suspect, who was arrested in Hornlee on Thursday night, will appear in the Knysna Magistrate’s Court on Friday. He says the man’s bail hearing will probably be postponed. The brutal murders of 19-year-old Jessica Wheeler, whose body was found in a churchyard in October, and 20-year-old Victoria Stadler, who was found about a month later in bushes near Hornlee, shocked the popular Southern Cape tourist town.
