Cape Town - The teenager arrested in connection with the murder of a Cape Town man stood at the scene of the crime, talking to the father of the man he allegedly killed.

Clayton Fillies, 18, was arrested while he was writing exams at school last week, the Daily Voice reported.

He was charged with murdering Neil Daniels.

Reverend Casper Daniels said he believed his son had been murdered because he was gay.

His son’s body was discovered in a reeded area in Brooklyn after it had been set alight last week.

Daniels remembered standing next to the suspect as he looked at his son’s body and said Fillies had asked him whose body lay there.

“When I was at the scene, he (the suspect) was wearing a white cap and was standing next to me and I didn’t even know it was him.”

Daniels said he wanted to go to court to look his son’s alleged killer in the eye, adding that he wanted justice for his son.
