Possible Serial Killer in Tembisaon July 23, 2011 in Unsubs by Brian Combs
At least six people have been found murdered and mutilated in the Tembisa township in the East Rand, South Africa. Most recently, the decomposing remains were found of a 17-year-old girl, known only publicly as Rose, who disappeared two weeks ago.
Her hands, lips, ears, tongue and womb had been removed.
A 6pm to 6am patrol has been put in place. Said Youth Patrol chairperson Mduduzi Mngadi:
Her friends said they were at a tavern when Rose left to fetch some money. One of her friends said her mother knew what happened to her.
When questioned, the mother confessed that her boyfriend killed the girl. A manhunt was launched for the boyfriend, who is known as Jabu. He was caught and allegedly confessed to the crime.
A mob formed and demanded that the “serial killer” Jabu be handed over to them. Police dispersed the crown using pepper spray.
At this point, police do not believe that this case is related to the other five murders.
It’s possible that Jabu used the other murders to attempt to cover his crimes against Rose. But the extreme mutilation suggests a psychopathology that generally requires some practice.
