Limpopo fugitive 'extremely dangerous'
Marietie Louw-Carstens, Beeld
Johannesburg - A forensic psychologist says the Limpopo man who is on the run after allegedly killing his stepson and forcing three men to rape his estranged wife, is extremely dangerous.
Dr Micki Pistorius says the man - identified as Johan Kotzé, 50, from Modimolle - will definitely hurt others again.
Pistorius is also a criminologist and headed the police’s investigation-oriented psychology unit for several years.
Kotzé allegedly shot and killed his stepson, Conrad Bonnette, 19, in his rented home in Modimolle last Tuesday and has been on the run since then.
He apparently hired three men as gardeners and allegedly ordered them to gang-rape the woman. The three men have also not yet been arrested.
The fact that Kotzé went to Maroela Lodge in Modimolle to “spy on” her on New Year's Eve, showed he had an immature ego, said Pistorius.
“He is clearly an extremely dangerous person and definitely has the potential to again be that cruel.”
Hawks involved in manhunt
Limpopo police communication head Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said the Hawks are involved in the search.
He said strong leads are being followed.
“His days are numbered,” declared Mulaudzi.
He said Kotzé was armed and warned the public to be careful if they saw him.
Kotzé fled in a white Toyota Fortuner (DCS 392 FS).
