Possible Serial Killer Stalking Gay Johannesburg

Over the last ten months there have been four similar murders in Johannesburg, South Africa. In each case police have found a thirtysomething gay man bound and strangled to death with no sign of forced entry and only occasional indications of theft. In one instance, the killer  poured acid over his victim.

Though the deaths might be the work of a serial killer, but authorities haven’t made an announcement. There’s also no indication on whether the murderer and his victims were friends or intimately involved.

    This story doesn’t ring true. It suggests that the South African police have noticed a pattern in four apparently unconnected events. The South African police wouldn’t notice a robbery with violence taking place in the police station.
