S01E03-I | The Portsmouth Defence | The Killing of Le Roux Theunissen (Part I)

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 I, we look at how the people involved in the tragedy came to know each other and what actually happened on that fateful day.
