Don Steenkamp is the Griekwastad Murderer

Hi there,

As you can see, Don Steenkamp is the Griekwastad Murderer who raped his sister and murdered her and their parents. Don celebrated his 18th birthday recently and because he decided to appeal, he will be embroiled in legal proceedings after he came of age and therefore we can now identify him.

I've uploaded Judge Frans Kgomo's judgment with regards to the sentencing on this website. Please do read it. The new edition of my book will hit the shelves soon. This edition will include a new cover and an epilogue, which covers the sentencing.

I hope you enjoy it!

The book was absolutely gripping - I couldn't put it down - reading it in a day, even forgoing a night's sleep to get to the end!

Well documented and as you lead us down the road , looking for a reason for the murder, it was not the money but the rape of his sister and the potential ramifications it would have had on himself , regarding his parents finding out.
It is worthy of making a movie, there was greed , murder , the unbelievable belief that the grandparents and close friends believing he did not do it.
For me he became the Charles Manson of Griekwastad .
In closing , the public prosecutor and state team , gave me much hope that there are fine good people that work for justice, not reward.
I would think that the defense knowing there client had damning evidence against him , should have plea bargained, sometimes i a settlement is better then taking your chance on a judgment.
My heart went out to the later father and husband when the family tried to convince the court that he had raped his daughter

Thank you for the book. I've just finished reading it, and feel that it's a very important book that all South Africans should read.
For me, the story will never be over until that boy confesses and explains his actions....
