Cape Town – Murdered Stellenbosch student Inge Lotz, 22, was killed by someone close to her and was betrayed by her friends.

This startling revelation has been made by investigative journalist Michael Day, reported Rapport.

Day has been working with ex-top cop Piet Byleveld, who was appointed by Lotz’s father to help solve the murder that made headlines since the student’s body was found in her flat seven years ago.

Day said all the answers to the mystery were locked within Lotz’s circle of friends, some of whom had climbed the ladder of success since her murder.

Day said these so-called friends refused to talk or reveal what they knew of the brutal murder because they believed they were above the law.

They pretended to be her friends but really hated her, said Day.

Hatred was also the motive for her murder, he said.

Lawyer Johan Jordaan who represented Inge Lotz’s parents said Day was the one person who had worked closely with Byleveld to solve the murder.

“Michael Day and Piet Byleveld are a team. Piet is the master detective, Michael the background man who sits with astonishing information after years of research. Yes, they share information,” said Jordaan.

Day will release his book on the murder next year. Its working title was Betrayed – The Inge Lotz Story: Her Life, Her Death, and the Hunt for Her Killer.
