    About the episode:


    Louisa Cornelia Susana Van Der Merwe was born in 2013 and just a mere 3 years later, her little life would be cut short- taken by the people she trusted to look after her- her family. During her months of abuse, although people saw what was happening, they and the authorities failed her. Her voice and her experience must be known.

    Episode 1: The Welkom Grave Murder

    Episode 1: The Welkom Grave Murder

    Welcome to the first episode of Murder & Mayhem: South African True Crime. This is an immersive 3D audio experience so headphones are recommended (but of course not necessary)


     


    About the episode: In 2011, the little mining town of Welkom, South Africa was thrust into the spotlight as news of a disturbing and tragic crime hit the media. The victim? 23 year-old Michael van Eck. The perpetrators? A young couple-Chane van Heerden (20) and her partner in crime (quite literally) Maartens van Der Merwe - (24)


    As further details emerged of the horrific crime committed in a graveyard, the truth of the murder would prove more bizarre in a web of dark desires where reality and fiction merged.
