The affluent Van Breda family moved back to their native South Africa from Australia in 2014. Martin (54), Teresa (55) and their daughter, Marli (16), arrived first. The brothers, Rudi (22) and Henri (20), would follow later on during a break from school at the University of Melbourne. The family moved to the gated community of De Zalze Golf Estate in Stellenbosch. It was one of the safest areas to live in a crime-ridden South Africa with motion detectors, an alarm system, 24-hour guard patrol, access-controlled gates, and an electric fence. The Van Bredas were described as a normal, happy, and close-knit family. However, tragedy would soon strike. On January 27, 2015, they were brutally attacked in their home. Martin, Teresa, and Rudi were found dead at the scene with pools of blood surrounding them. Marli was remarkably still alive after putting up a fight but was in critical condition. The only conscious witness to the attack was Henri, who had sustained minimal injuries. He described the axe-yielding intruder as a muscular black man wearing dark clothes, gloves, and a balaclava. He told police that he heard loud banging noises early in the morning and opened the door to the bedroom he shared with his brother, Rudi, only to see a man attacking his brother with an axe. His father entered the room after Henri shouted for help. He tried to protect Rudi with his body but they both died due to the massive deep gashes endured by the axe. Apparently during this entire time, Henri was frozen with fear. After the alleged intruder was done with his father and brother, he turned his attention to Henri. Rather than using the same axe he had been using, he attacked Henri with a knife causing the minor injuries he sustained. The intruder then attacked his mother and sister. Henri explained that he passed out and was unconscious for hours after the attack, which is why he didn’t immediately call emergency services. The police turned their attention on Henri as a person of interest. On June 7, 2018, Henri van Breda was convicted and sentenced to three life sentences, 15 years for attempted murder, and 12 months for obstructing justice.
\ True crime bits: Paul Bernard a manipulative man who turned his then wife into a accomplice to his wretched psychotic desires. High functioning psychopaths are very narcissistic and although their actions seem to describe them as emotionless they know about emotions and thus know how to push people. #mindhunters#truecrimes#serialmurders#psychopathfree for some reason the human mind is a world with unlimited potential for evil but also for good. And it’s very interesting to know more so you can understand yourself and others
John Kalisz was angry at his sister Kathryn "Kitty" Donovan and her daughter Manessa for "ruining his life" with allegations of masturbating in front of then-17-tear-old Manessa, giving her nude photos, and threatening her boyfriend with a knife. These charges landed him with six years of probation. He told friends the accusations and conviction ruined him.
Kalisz walked into his sister Kathryn "Kitty" Donovan's home and opened fire with a 9-mm pistol. He killed Kitty and her office manager, Deborah Tillotson, and wounded Manessa and Amy Green, an employee at Kitty's home-based business.
Afterward, Kalisz fled north in his van. When Dixie County deputies confronted him, he shot Capt. Chad Reed in the mouth. Deputies returned fire, hitting Kalisz at least six times. Reed, a married father of two boys, later died.
Kalisz was sentenced to death but died only five years later in November, 2015.

On May 20, 1998, Kip Kinkel was suspended from his school in Springfield, Oregon, after police located a firearm in his locker. He was then driven home by his father. That afternoon, Kip was told by his father that he would be shipped off to military school if he didn’t change his ways. At about 3 PM, as his father was seated in the kitchen drinking coffee, Kip fetched his .22 rifle and shot his father once in the back of the head. He afterward dragged the body into the bathroom and covered it with a sheet. About three hours later, his mother returned home. He then met her out in the garage, told her that he loves her, then fired at her multiple times. The next day, Kip drove to his school clad in a trenchcoat concealing five weapons. As soon as he entered the building, shot two students. He then made his way to the cafeteria and opened fire. As Kip was reloading his gun, one of the wounded students tackled him, followed by several more students. He was disarmed and subdued until police took him into custody. In total, Kip killed two students, while leaving twenty four wounded. He received life in prison without parole. #truecrime#truecrimecommunity#truecrimeaddict#tcc#kipkinkel#killer#murder#murderer#schoolshooter#schoolshooting#schizophrenia#paranoid#truecrimegarage#truecrimes#truecrimejunkie
On January 8, 2011, U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords and eighteen others were shot during a "Congress on your Corner" meeting held in a supermarket parking lot in Casas Adobes, Arizona, in the Tucson metropolitan area. Giffords had set up a table outside the store and about 20 to 30 people were gathered around her when 22-year-old Jared Lee Loughner suddenly drew a pistol and shot Giffords in the head.
Six people died that day:
Dorothy "Dot" Morris, 76, a retired secretary from Oro Valley; wife of George, who was wounded
John Roll, 63, chief judge of the U.S. District Court for Arizona
Phyllis Schneck, 79, homemaker from Tucson
Gabe Zimmerman, 30, Giffords' community outreach director
Dorwan Stoddard, 76, retired construction worker, died from a gunshot wound to the head; his wife Mavy was wounded
Christina-Taylor Green, 9, was later pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.
Giffords miraculously survived the assassination attempt, but had to resign from Congress to focus on her rehabilitation.
The hotel owned by serial killer H.H Holmes which became known as the "Murder Castle" due to the estimated 200 people who lost their lives within it's walls. The design of the hotel was unique in that it was constructed of mazes, windowless rooms, stairways which led to nowhere and doors which would either only open from the outside or opened to brick walls. Holmes was the only one who understood the hotel's design and he used this to his advantage when trapping and killing his victims. The corpses of Holmes' victims were dropped into the basement via a chute where some would be mutilated before they were disposed of. Others had their bones sold to medical schools. #truecrime#truecrimecommunity#truecrimeaddict#tcc#hhholmes#serialkillers#serialkiller#truecrimegarage#truecrimes#truecrimejunkie

At around 12 pm this afternoon a delicious double chocolate birthday cake was placed in the middle of a kitchen island. Strict instructions were relayed to all passers by that the cake was not to be disturbed by anyone who’s birthday was not on January 3rd.
At approximately 3:06 PM the cake found murdered on the kitchen floor next to a chocolate trail leading to a small person by the name of Wil. The suspect was found covered in chocolate and was brought to the station for interrogation. The suspect claimed that a different small person by the name of Rocko had stolen the cake and was framing him because he wanted rights to his candy supply.
The second suspect has been found but is refusing to make any remarks without his lawyer.
Further details of this crime will be appearing on your favorite crime podcasts this spring.
