Cape Town - The sister-in-law of slain Ukrainian tourist Ivan Ivanov has written a heartbreaking letter to the Hout Bay community, thanking them for helping to apprehend the man who allegedly killed him.
The letter, sent over WhatsApp to a local resident, reveals that Ivanov had three university degrees and spoke four languages fluently.
He was a father of three, with his youngest being just two years old.
Ivanov was stabbed to death for his backpack, while he was hiking on Chapman’s Peak drive above Hout Bay on Saturday morning.
Teamwork by local residents and security professionals led to the arrest of a 25-year-old, who was found in possession of Ivanov’s backpack and confessed to the murder.
