The double-murder trial of the alleged “Table Mountain killer” is set to resume on Monday morning in the Cape Town high court.
“When he approached us, I thought he was a good-looking man. He had beautiful, kind eyes. But when he pulled out a knife, his eyes turned into slits and his whole face turned to anger and he just started st_bbing Doug, repeatedly,” said Julia.
A SANParks master tracker arrived on scene and tracked the stolen bicycle’s tyre tracks over the sand dunes, leading past an infrared camera of a residential complex.
The black and white image revealed what police say was the culprit pushing a bicycle minutes after McPherson was attacked. The man was wearing a V-neck shirt.
In the visual investigation TimesLIVE looks at how the state says Blessing Bveni operated before he was arrested and how the SANParks ranger tracked the footprints of the culprit, shining light on the suspect’s alleged vicious rule of the mountain.
The case is set to resume on October 5 2020 in the Cape Town high court.
