Listen to the story here: 

In late 2009, a serial predator was hunting in towns around Gauteng. The man, dressed in a disguise and armed with a gun, forced young girls into his vehicle before raping them and releasing them in rural areas.

It wouldn’t be long, though, before he would escalate and in the most horrific way imaginable.

With many of his crimes taking placing on a Sunday, Jaco Steyn would become know as “the Sunday rapist” but this moniker belied the true devastation he wrought on countless victims.

In episode 79 of True Crime South Africa, the details of this case are explored and an investigation in which a detective and a forensic artist went above and beyond the call of duty.
