Jesus Killer: The Jimmy Maketta Story
Jesus Killer: The Jimmy Maketta Story 1 x 30'
Jimmy Maketta terrorised a small farming community in Cape Town for months in 2005 killing the husband and raping the wives. Many of the victims could only name him as the “Jesus Killer” because he apparently had a tattoo of Jesus across his chest. Farm workers feared for their lives and gathered together in the evenings for fear of being the Jesus killer’s next victim. The police did not take the killings seriously until the killer started leaving messages and maps about where to find the next body. When police finally captured Maketta they discovered that his reign of terror had lasted more than a year. In that time he is accused of killing more than 16 people and raping 19 women.
