Showmax's first original true-crime docu-series Devilsdorp investigates the brutal Appointment Murders that gripped the town of Krugersdorp between 2011 and 2016. Marizka Coetzer was a journalist at the Krugersdorp News when she started covering the Krugersdorp murders in 2016. It would lead her down a path of heartbreak that, five years later, she is still recovering from. This is her story.
I was working as a journalist at Krugersdorp News when I started covering the Krugersdorp murders in 2016, when the first victim of The Appointment Murders, Anthony Scholefield, was found in his boot.
At that point, it was just a very mysterious murder, especially in a town like Krugersdorp. When the second victim, Kevin McAlpine, was murdered, in the exact same way, it sparked my interest because I initially thought a serial killer was on the loose.
