He appealed to the community and South Africa to help them find the killer,"Not only that we can put him in jail, but that he can't do it to somebody else, because if he's done something like that once, he will do it again... maybe he has done it already before."

Florian is of Swiss descent and the family live in Kalk Bay.

According to reports, Franziska was strangled and her body dumped in bushes. Yesterday, hundreds gathered in the forest to pay tribute to Franziska.
