[LISTEN] Here’s how police classify a suspect as a serial killer

The South African Police Service suspects killings in the Kagiso area from mid-May are linked to a serial killer.

CAPE TOWN - The South African Police Service has appealed for help to find a suspected serial killer in the Kagiso area.

Police say the killings started in mid-May this year. Professor Gérard Labuschagne, a clinical psychologist, explains how a serial killer is identified.

“Once you have a second murder occurring at a different incident and it’s linked to the same individual, you can start to consider that it’s the work of a serial murderer. Of course, if you find a lot of bodies in one geographical area, that’s one of the easiest warning signs. We do see that serial murderers tend to leave bodies in groupings of areas.”
