WARNING: This investigation contains descriptions of child abuse that you may find triggering or difficult to read.

Medals, a mask, fish and a black wig – these are among the items found during a search of the homes of alleged child predator Marius Pistorius, corresponding with items the children claim to have seen at the place where they were sexually abused.

On 24 August 2012, Pistorius' two Melkbosstrand houses, situated directly opposite each other, as well as Babbel & Krabbel, were searched after an Anton Piller order was granted as part of a civil case instituted by two of his alleged victims' parents.
