    PROFILER Episode 14 - Tommy Williams

    The incredible tale of South Africa's longest active serial killer. Upon his conviction the Judge said “The State (and here I include the two prosecutors and the SAPS investigating team) have excelled in investigating and prosecuting this case to its ultimate successful conclusion. The difficulties should be self-evident, given the fact that the 1987 matter occurred twenty two years ago, the inquest docket had been destroyed and material witnesses have passed away or have retired. The same obstacles presented themselves to a lesser extent in the 2004 matter. Dogged persistence and diligent investigation coupled with meticulous prosecution have borne fruit for the State. The investigation and prosecution teams are deserving of commendation and we unreservedly oblige.” This then is their story.

Unique Podcast

The episodes are told from a unique perspective, because of Gerard’s first hand experience working on the cases. The hosts are authentic and the episodes are not over-edited. It is different from other podcasts and I enjoy it. They get more experienced and comfortable with podcasting with every episode. Thanks guys.
