Anger over child mur­der

Finweek English Edition - - The main stories this week -

WHAT HAP­PENED A NUM­BER OF pa­pers de­voted many pages to the dis­ap­pear­ance of Sheldean Hu­man of Pre­to­ria and the dis­cov­ery of her body 15 days later near the Tsh­wane fresh pro­duce mar­ket. Neigh­bours and po­lice had searched for her un­in­ter­rupt­edly, and vir­tu­ally the whole coun­try shared its sym­pa­thy with the fam­ily. Su­per­in­ten­dent Piet Byleveld, who solved the Leigh Matthews mur­der, was called in to as­sist. THE STAR said the mur­der of the seven-year-old girl must not only be con­demned in the strong­est terms, but should also serve as a call to solve other sim­i­lar cases and bring the mur­der­ers to jus­tice. The Pre­to­ria News said that al­though ev­ery­one had been hop­ing fer­vently for a hap­pier res­o­lu­tion, the over­whelm­ing pub­lic sym­pa­thy for the fam­ily brought the coun­try to­gether.
