Ninth gay man killed in suspected serial murders in South Africa

April 18, 2013

The most recent victim of a string of brutal anti-gay murders in South Africa was found face down in a pool of blood on Monday morning.

Dr Carl Miscke, a gay professor at the University of Johannesburg, was stabbed multiple times after inviting his killer or killers into his home.

Police have confirmed his death will be investigated alongside those of eight other murder victims, the first of whom was found dead in April 2010 tied up and bludgeoned to death with a laptop computer.

The nine murders were all committed in the South African regions of Guateng and Cape Town.
