A Crime Most Queer

A Crime Most Queer explores crimes either committed by or against members of the South African Queer community. Every Thursday, Nj Hourquebie delves into true stories of murder, assault, victimisation and hate crimes involving LGBTQ people in South Africa. With each episode, he looks into the backgrounds of each of the players, how their paths crossed so tragically, and what makes these cases “queer”, as in both relating to their LGBTQ-connections and the twists and kinks that make them particularly bizarre.

Gay Panic in South Africa (Part I): The Death of Nhlanhla Gasa

On March 26th, 2013, the body of Nhlanhla Gasa, a politically-connected millionaire businessman, was spotted floating in the Tugela River on KwaZulu Natal's north coast, and, not far away, his burnt-out Jaguar was discovered.

Why had he been stabbed 12 times and his body dumped in a river? He had lived a colourful life. Had his past finally caught up with him or was there any truth to the rumours that he led a secret gay lifestyle and that his toy boy had killed him?

The Portsmouth Defence: The Killing of Le Roux Theunissen (Part II)

Just days after an emotional reconciliation between father and son on national television, 21-year-old Le Roux Theunissen was found strangled to death in his home. The prime suspect is his landlord's (straight) sex buddy, but why? In Part II, we dive into the investigation, trial and conviction of Le Roux's killer, as we sort the lies from the truth and try to uncover the real reason that Le Roux's life was snuffed out so callously.

Slaughter on the Seaboard: The Sizzlers Massacre (Part V)

On January 20th, 2003, two men entered Sizzlers, a gay massage parlour in Sea Point, Cape Town and tortured 10 men before slitting their throats, shooting them in the head and leaving them for dead. In Part V of this five-part serial, we look into the conspiracy of the Third Man and look into the likelihood of it being a man who has cropped up regularly throughout the story. We also find out where those left behind are now and what they have been up to over the past decade and a half.

Deadly Friends: The Murder of Annicke Thofte and Danie Robbertze

On 27th May 2008, Annicke Thofte and Danie Robbertze were found murdered in their flat in Durban, South Africa. Both had been shot in the head. What made matters worse was that their killer was known to them. That fateful Monday night, they had invited Gordon van Niekerk into their home, as they had done many times before, but what they didn’t know was that this time he was coming for more than just the wine.
