  • Jayde’s death splits SA along racial lines - Crime & Courts | IOL News

    The murder of Port Elizabeth teacher Jayde Panayiotou has whipped up a race storm on social media. Panayiotou’s killing sent shockwaves through the country this week after police released an identikit of 31-year-old Thando Siyoli, listed as a suspect in the murder of the 28-year-old Uitenhage teacher. A Facebook group was subsequently set up calling for the death penalty for the killer, but as soon as Panayiotou’s husband, Christopher, was confirmed as another suspect in her killing, the page announced that it would be changing its name to “Justice for Jayde Panayiotou – Change for South Africa”. “Is it because the face of the criminal has changed that we no longer endorse the death penalty,” one comment read.
