Episode 41: Desecrated | The Tragic Murder of Lynette Volschenk
Welcome to the Episode 41 of Murder & Mayhem: South African True Crime. About the episode: “I am a charming psychopath and grateful to be a clever serial killer”.   These are the shocking words of not only an aspiring crime writer but a cold blooded murderer. The crime he committed sent shockwaves through the nation for its brutal nature. An innocent woman his victim, none the wiser to the dark intentions of someone who was watching her; biding his time- from just metres away from her home.    And as the case unfolded and more evidence came to light, the disturbing mind of this man became known to the public. During a year full of violence towards women from a murder in a post office to the murder of a young girl and her grandfather by a family member- this case reaffirmed the fact that GBV is out of control in our beloved country.   This is the senseless and heartbreaking case of the murder of Lynette Volschenk.   For images, sources and real footage of the individuals and the case mentioned, please visit my Youtube Channel- Bella Monsoon where this case has been covered in video format HERE.

Welcome to the Episode 32 of Murder & Mayhem: South African True Crime. About the episode: After years of hard work, sacrifices and dedication- one young woman was on the path to making all of her dreams come true.

Welcome to the Episode 28 of Murder & Mayhem: South African True Crime. About the episode: A young girl is reported missing- snatched just metres away from the entrance of her school. A city is frantically searching for her, sharing her image on all media platforms.    That very same afternoon in another part of the city- a woman is making a cup of tea. She sits down on her couch, switches on the tv just as a familiar face flashes across the screen. The words ‘suspect’ appear below the identikit of this rather unremarkable but yet recognisable face. The woman stifles a gasp and immediately reaches over for her phone. On the other end of the line- the police hear a female speaking and she says: “I saw the identikit and I think I know the man you’re looking for”.   This is the story of the serial crimes of a callous and cruel man.

Welcome to the Episode 24 of Murder & Mayhem: South African True Crime. About the episode: What happens when a serial killer cannot be classified?
