No gay serial killer - police

2011-10-11 14:14

Johannesburg - Police have denied they were investigating the possibility of a serial killer preying on gay men in Johannesburg.

"We are not looking at one specific person... cases are being investigated individually and progress has been made in some," Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said on Tuesday.

He said it was impossible for one individual to have been responsible for all the killings.

A man was already on trial in the South Gauteng High Court for one of the killings, while two Zimbabwean men were being extradited for another murder. Police had leads for suspects in other killings too, Dlamini said.

On Tuesday, The Star reported that a murder of a 47-year-old gay man in Northcliff, Johannesburg, in August had striking resemblances to five other killings of gay men in the last 18 months.

The man was found bound and bludgeoned to death in his home, with no sign of forced entry and minimal theft. Dlamini would not be drawn on a possible motive for the killings.

    @Rubbish - Gay is all colours you twat. Your name describes your comments.

      stefanie.fourie - 2011-10-11 14:38

      @Rubbish I have seen a few gay blacks so your argument is invalid. so do us all a favor and shut up as you are only making yourself look like an idiot! My thoughts go out to the gay ppl & their family who have murdered.

      Who calls him/herself "Rubbish"? ALL your comments on News 24 are of pure hate. Specifically towards whites. Now you starting with the gays. There is something very wrong with you dude.

      Almaki - 2011-10-11 14:46

      Yup, I have. I've seen black women marry black women as well. You really should take your blinkers off and stop being such a hypocritical judgemental twit. Oink to you.

      @Rubbish.., I think you need your mouth washed out boy, maybe your boyfriend could punish you after he gives you a proper spanking for being a naughty boy!!

    The f@kking point here is not Gay or Straight!!People has been murdered and the guilty needs to rot in Jail...

    It's comments like that that come from Rubbish that make me hate this country. IT IS SICK. Sadly, while comments like that can be removed, the hurt they have caused - even in the short span of time - cannot, nor can that mindset be erased and THAT is what produces news such as contained in this article. GOD HELP THIS COUNTRY AND THE SICK F**KS THAT LIVE IN IT THAT DON'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THE NEXT PERSON! Roll on the Facebook-only logins. That will keep the cowards away!

      Big mack - 2011-10-11 15:07

      Looking 4ward to that day too Mike!

    Lonely gay men pick up rent boys off the street, and this is sometimes the result.

      followers in uniform of a closet gay man

  • Wiki - 2011-10-11 15:08

    IDIOTS!!! It is blatantly obvious that there is a serial killer in Johannesburg targeting gay men. "Lieutenant Colonel" Dlamini should get another job... cleaning the toilets at the JMPD.

      dithala - 2011-10-11 15:15

      Why are you still alive then? puke!

  • d2eguy - 2011-10-11 15:20

    gay serial killer - sounds like Georgie

  • 2WhiteStars - 2011-10-11 15:20

    I doubt these guys are being lured from nightclubs because there'd be CCTV cameras. I reckon it's online hookups that are leading to this. You need to be very careful before you let someone into your home. But some gay men DO take a lot of chances. Please be careful out there. And @ Rubbish - do you have any idea how many gay black men and women there are in this country?

    Fantastic... We don't have "a" gay serial killer, we just happen to have multiple killers who kill gay people. How is this better?

  • mwahahahaha - 2011-10-11 20:49
