SA man's murder mystery deepens

Johannesburg - The family of a South African man who was killed in Zambia fear that a second post-mortem will do little to help solve his strange murder.

Rapport stated that the body of Marius Pienaar, 50, had been badly mutilated before it was thrown into a crocodile-infested river near a fishing camp.

A pathologist found he had been clubbed over the head three times and was then stabbed in the neck, chest, shoulder, arms and face.

Both of his nipples had also been cut off, possibly to ascertain that he was dead.

Pienaar’s wife, Estie, 33, and her lover Nicky Rossouw, 58, as well as Mulumbwa Nyambe, 30, were arrested for Pienaar’s murder.

Pienaar’s family was said to be suffering due to the court delays and Pienaar’s father was taking a lot of strain, said a family friend.

A second post-mortem would be held but the body had already decomposed to such an extent that not a lot of hope was pinned on it.

Rossouw, who is the owner of the fishing camp where Pienaar had been killed, three years ago was questioned by police after one of his employees died under suspicious circumstances.

    The truth will always come out, no matter how long it takes. No body deserves to die when a relationship doesn't work out.
