South African Serial Monsters

I have already written about the 5 men that were bound and killed in South Africa. There is an uproar over the fact that many feel that the police are not taking the cases seriously because the murdered men are homosexuals.  (Great article here by David Lohr.) I hope that they are wrong but they might be right.

“Cases of this nature are not taken seriously by the police or the justice department,” he said.

“It is our firm belief that the Department of Constitutional Development and Justice has to come to the party in ensuring that the plight of LGBT (and intersexed) people (receive the necessary attention and investigation),” he added.

All four victims mentioned in The Star’s report on Monday were killed in the past 10 months. They were tied up and strangled inside private homes within the greater Joburg area.

Police reported no signs of forced entry and believe these killings may be the work of a serial killer or a homophobic gang.

The lack of break-ins may mean the victims knew their would-be killers and could have invited them in.

The victim who has come to light after the previous report in The Star is Manolis Veloudos. He was found in his home in Greenside in April last year.

He was bound and murdered, seemingly by someone he had invited into his home. Again, there was no sign of forced entry onto the property, and very little was stolen.

South African serial killer / rapist Sello Phalane will be heading to court this week. He is charged with 5 counts of rape, murder and robbery.

“The man allegedly raped, robbed and killed five women between 2008 and 2009 around the Dennilton area,” Lt-Col Mohale Ramatseba said on Friday.

He was arrested at Diskom taxi rank in Zebediela in September 2009, while selling CDs, Ramatseba said.

Eva Lekalakala, 41, was the first of his alleged victims and was killed in June 2008. Her remains were found at Spitpunt, in Dennilton. She was later identified through DNA tests, said Ramatseba.

Josephine Manamela, 38, was killed in August 2008 and her decomposed body was found at Ga Maria village between Vall Bank and Dennilton.

In February of 2009, the naked body of an unknown woman, around 30, was found in the bushes at Driefontein in Dennilton.

The remains of Margaret Seretlo, 41, were found at Driefontein in Dennilton in July 2009, as were those of Elizabeth Kobe, 36.

The trial is set down from Monday until Friday.

Phalane was not granted bail and remains in police custody.

The last article that I am going to make you aware of is also out of South Africa and deals with the worst kind of monster.  There is one suspect linked to 21 child rapes and one child who was murdered.

Police believe that a series of child rapes, which occurred over 16 months, was the work of a single suspect.

But it was only after the Khayelitsha community rallied that police were able to track a suspect to an informal settlement in Philippi.

A 25-year-old man was arrested and initially charged with the failed abduction of a six-year-old girl, but police say investigations have linked the suspect to a string of other cases.

He has now been charged with 22 counts of abduction, 21 of rape and one murder, all involving girls aged between two and nine.

Police are investigating whether the suspect was involved in more crimes. 

How can anyone find a child ‘sexually arousing’? At 2 years of age? This is so beyond my understanding that I do not even try to make any sense of it.

It is alleged that the suspect conducted a 16-month reign of terror in the area around Monwabisi Park, Harare and Lingelethu West in Khayelitsha, but it was only after a four-year-old girl was murdered and a six-year-old girl managed to escape after allegedly being abducted that residents and police realised they had a serial rapist on their hands.

Provincial police commissioner Lieutenant-General Arno Lamoer said police were continuing to investigate, scanning reported cases to find out whether the suspect was involved.

On September 12, Aviwe Speelman was playing with her two-year-old brother in the yard of her parents’ home in Endlovini. Her parents were inside at the time.

After 20 minutes they realised Aviwe was gone and were told by her tearful brother that a man had taken his sister to the shop to buy chips, but he had been ordered to stay behind.

Her family, neighbours and police searched through the night for the little girl. The next day residents brought their dogs to join the search and later that day dogs sniffing in the bushes that border Monwabisi Park found Aviwe’s body.

Police Warrant Officer November Filander said Aviwe had been raped and strangled.

Her body had been covered with twigs and leaves, and her clothing lay next to her, Mbuwako said.

Just days later, the six-year-old disappeared.

Mbuwako said that at 4pm that day, the girl was seen with a man. She was holding chips. When residents chased the pair, the man let go of the girl’s hand and fled.

Mbuwako said that after this incident, residents had held a meeting during which some said they knew the man.

Residents had speculated that the man could be responsible for a spate of rapes in Harare and Lingelethu West.

He said there had been many rapes in those areas, but residentshad no way of knowing whether the same person was involved.

Three girls had been raped in one week, he said.

Police had been investigating the six-year-old’s abduction and this had led them to an informal settlement in Philippi, Filander said.

A man was arrested on the night of September 20 and initially charged only with the girl’s abduction.

At the time, police said the abduction and Aviwe’s death were unrelated.

When the man was arrested, forensic evidence had not yet been finalised, Lamoer said.

“Last week, thanks to forensic evidence, we started putting the picture together,” he added.

DNA evidence had linked one suspect to both crimes, along with 20 other abductions and rapes.

It was clear from the sheer number of rapes that police were dealing with a serial rapist, Lamoer said.

The crimes for which the man has been charged date from April last year to last month. All the victims were girls aged between two and nine, he said.

“We will continue investigations and see if other reported cases can be linked,” said the commissioner.

With Aviwe being raped and murdered by strangulation I am guessing that the killer was ‘advancing’, escalating in his desires. Rape was not enough anymore, even if it was the rape of a small child. He needed more to be fulfilled. I would be willing to bet that there would have been many more little girls raped and murdered after poor Aviwe.

The suspect appeared in the Khayelitsha Magistrate’s Court on Friday. The case was postponed to November 1.

Dey said residents in areas like Khayelitsha took crimes against children very seriously and authorities often had to step in to calm angry residents down.

When children were raped in Khayelitsha, some residents threatened to take matters into their own hands, Dey said, because these crimes were “not an accepted thing”.

Moors Murder Victim’s Mum Speaks Up

‘Hanging’s too good for Hindley’: Mother of last Moors Murder victim says she WON’T back return of death penalty

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER

Last updated at 5:28 PM on 6th August 2011

The mother of the last victim of the Moors murders is refusing to back the return of the death penalty insisting ‘hanging is too quick’ and child murderers must be made to suffer.

Twelve-year-old Keith Bennett is buried on bleak Saddleworth Moor on the border of Yorkshire and Lancashire after being murdered by Ian Brady and Myra Hindley in 1964.

Brady only admitted Keith’s murder – along with Pauline Reade, 16 – while serving a multiple life sentence for killing three other children, but has always refused to reveal the whereabouts of his grave.

The pair were jailed for life in 1966 after being convicted of the murders of three other children, Edward Evans, Lesley Ann Downey and John Kilbride. Myra Hindley died in jail in 2002.

Last night, Keith’s 77-year-old mother Winnie Johnson said hanging was too quick and child killers must be made to suffer.

It comes as almost 50 years after the death penalty was abolished there is an ever growing online petition calling on Parliament to hang child and police killers.

Ian Brady and Myra Hindley were jailed for life in 1966 after being convicted of the murders of three other children, Edward Evans, Lesley Ann Downey and John Kilbride

The last hanging in Britain took place the year the schoolboy was murdered.

HANGING: A HISTORY

Winnie Johnson said hanging was too quick and child killers must be made to suffer

Until 1868 hangings were performed in public

In London, the traditional site was at Tyburn, but before 1865, executions took place outside Newgate Prison, Old Bailey, now the site of the Central Criminal Court

The death penalty was abolished in 1965 and renewed in 1969

The last woman to be hanged was Ruth Ellis on July 13, 1955, by Albert Pierrepoint who was a prominent hangman at the time

The last hanging in Britain took place in 1964, when Peter Anthony Allen, at Walton Prison in Liverpool, and Gwynne Owen Evans, at Strangeways Prison in Manchester were executed for the murder of John Alan West

But last night Ms Johnson insisted she would not be signing-up to the first controversial issue the man-in-the-street wants debated in Westminster under the Government’s new ‘let-the-people speak’ decree.

She said: ‘Hanging is too quick. Child killers like Brady must be made to suffer, in the way he hurt my Keith and all the other little ones.

‘The rope is too simple a solution for his sort. Serial killers like him need to be left to rot, for years, when hopefully they will reflect on their appalling crimes.

‘People could be forgiven for thinking I would be among the first demanding a return to capital punishment, but that is too soft a sentence for Brady.

‘I really hope that he has suffered over the years and now, maybe in the twilight of his life, he will display a single shred of sympathy by telling me where Keith’s remains are located.

‘The gesture would mean so much, especially as all police searches for Keith’s body have officially ended.

‘If Brady had swung for his crimes against my son and the others, there would have been no chance – however slim it is – of him relenting and putting me out of my misery by pinpointing Keith’s grave.’

The search for Keith's body on Saddleworth Moor has been going on for decades - but Brady has refused to reveal the grave's whereaboutsThe search for Keith’s body on Saddleworth Moor has been going on for decades – but Brady has refused to reveal the grave’s whereabouts.

I can understand her hope of finding her baby’s grave through Brady, I just do not ever see him giving it. Serial killers enjoy the games, the attention and the pain that they produce in the families, the living victims.

I understand her hoping that he has spent years dwelling in the death he caused, but I doubt that he did.

Most serial killers love re-living their crimes, many even return to the murder / burial sites to masturbate. Some bring lovers o these spots for sex because the memories excite them.

I wish that her ideas could be truth but there is no real reason to believe that she can / will / has gotten what she hopes for.

Keith was lured into a car by Brady’s lover Hindley while walking to his grandmother’s house four days after his 12th birthday in June 1964 – two months before Peter Allen, 53, and Wynne Owen Evans became the last murderers to be hanged in the UK.

Brady killed Keith and buried him on the Yorkshire-Lancashire moorland while Hindley kept look-out.

When the e-petition reaches the expected 100,000 signatures, MPs will be forced to debate a return to the gallows.

I can not see any reason to keep serial killers, child killers or pedophiles alive. Medical science, psychiatrists, criminologists, history and more have proven that these offenders can not and will not be “fixed”. They are and always will be threats to society in general, to the weak and to our children in particular.

For these kinds of criminals, the most brutal, repeat, killers and tormentors I support capital punishment.

They add nothing but fear, threats, pain and insecurity to our society, even in prison. Why allow that?

They will never be able to be productive members of society and will always be a threat to anyone that has to come into contact with them (including but not exclusive to guards, doctors, nurses, teaches, visitors, maintenance people, and other prisoners) so why allow this risk to all for the few?

Let me know your opinions and why.

If you want to sign the petition there is a link (a few others as well) below.

An article on the petition.

The Restore Justice Site

The Petition To Restore The Death Penalty In England For Child and Police Killers.

This just seems relevant. A petition to refuse child killers new identities.

If you do not support capital punishment but do support life sentences meaning LIFE this petition is for you.
