This is according to Captain Wayne Nachtmann, of the Police’s Investigative Psychological Unit, who testified in the Western Cape High Court in the case where Hoya is accused of targeting girls on their way to school in Khayelitsha.
The victims were aged between 10 and 15. The incidents took place between 2011 and 2012. The accused was linked to the crimes through forensic evidence.
On Thursday, Nachtmann explained his involvement.
He said a visit to the crime scene and from information detailed in the dockets he could come up with a profile and most likely, the modus operandi used by the accused, “and is corroborated by DNA profile matches”.
