Suspected Cape Town serial killer in court today
A man suspected of killing and raping a number of members of the farm worker community in Philippi on the Cape Flats appears in a Cape Town court today. The 49-year-old suspect was arrested on Thursday. Police believe they can link him to at least eight murders and six rapes in the area over the past few months. The community took their case to the Independent Complaints Commission and hunted for the killer themselves, after accusing police of not responding to their plight. The farm workers say they are still living in fear because they believe the suspect operated with a gang which is still at large.
