The Griekwastad Murders
The full account of the murders that rocked a nation by the journalist who first broke the story …
Just after dusk on Good Friday, 6 April 2012, the peace and quiet permeating the small Northern Cape town of Griekwastad was disrupted when a young teenage boy sped into town in his father’s Isuzu bakkie and screeched to a halt in front of the town’s nearly deserted police station.
It was shortly before 19h00 when Don Steenkamp jumped out of the vehicle and ran into the station’s charge office, covered in blood, to announce that his parents and sister had been brutally shot and killed on the family farm, Naauwhoek.
Although the killings were initially thought to be just another farm attack, months later a sixteen-year-old youth was arrested for the murders, setting in motion a chain of events that would grip South Africa, and divide the people of Griekwastad.
Based on interviews with all the role-players, including the investigating officers on the case, the forensic and ballistic experts, and family and friends of the deceased, this is the riveting account of what really happened on Naauwhoek farm on that fateful day, as told by the reporter who followed the case from day one …

Jacques, van die begin af was jy deel van die gewete van hierdie traumatiese en tragiese saak. Met die boek het jy vir my as leser op die punt van my stoel gehou met inligting en insig wat nie net die wreedheid van die skuldige dade onderstreep nie, maar, aan die ander kant, die kwesbaarheid, menslikheid, medemenslikheid en onwrikbare soeke na die waarheid van 'n groot aantal rolspelersen.
