Man wanted for murder of Norkem Park dad

AN identikit of one of the suspects involved in the home invasion and murder.

MORE than two years after the brutal murder of a Norkem Park father, the police have issued an identikit of one of the men suspected of the killing.

Since the death of Stephanus Francois (Stephan) du Toit on February 11, 2015, his daughter Mariska Meyer has started a Facebook page (Justice for Stephanus Francois du Toit.) to get justice for her father, and employed a private investigator.

STEPHAN du Toit, who was killed in his Norkem Park home in February 2015.

According to Capt Lesibana Molokomme, spokesman for Norkem Park SAPS, the suspects fled with various goods after gunning du Toit down.

Anyone with information about the person in the identikit, or any information that could lead to the arrest of all three suspects, can contact the investigating officer, Lt Col André Frans Potgieter on 082 411 6879, or 011 391 1814/5, or Crime Line on 086 001 0111.

PI to assist with murdered Norkem father’s investigation

The armed robbery occurred at a complex on Pongolarivier Drive at 2am when three men gained access to the house.

“When the burglars switched on the bedroom light where my dad, his wife and my baby sister were asleep, one of their little miniature Dobermans, Shaggy, started to bark. He wanted to calm Shaggy down when one of the robbers shot him through the left shoulder first and then through the right hip,” Meyer told Express during an earlier interview.

She said the intruders then climbed over her dad, collected five cellphones and ripped the chain from his wife’s neck. They climbed back over him and shot him a third time, severing his spine.

They ran off. A neighbour saw them jumping over a wall and the police and ambulance were phoned.

In July 2015 Meyer started the Facebook page as she felt the police got nowhere with their investigations. In April last yar she called in a private investigator to assist.
