An in-depth profile of Moses Sithole, who terrorized South Africa with a yearlong campaign of vengeance, gruesomely murdering innocent women to "teach them a lesson."
- Once imprisoned, Sithole made a series of brash confessional videos he intended to sell.
- Loving the attention, Sithole toyed with police and the press while they hunted him.
- His spree was named The ABC Murders after the neighborhoods where it began.
This is the terrible story of a one-man genocide.
Beginning in 1994, communities in South Africa were shaken by a series of vicious murders. The campaign of death began in Atteridgeville, Boksburg and Cleveland - giving them the name The ABC Murders - then spread throughout the region. By the time fifteen women had been raped and strangled, investigators knew they were on the trail of a world-class serial killer. They only saw how right they were when, on September 18, 1995, they discovered a mass grave containing the tragic corpses of ten black women, all bound in their underwear, raped and strangled.
What madman was capable of such horrible crimes? Where did he come from and what motivated his homicidal binge? How did he evade the authorities for so long? How was he finally brought to justice? Did he show remorse for his atrocities? Where is he now? You will be surprised by the truth.
