Serial Killers - Sipho Thwala (The Phoenix Strangler)

Sipho Mandla Agmatir Thwala is a South African rapist and serial killer who was convicted in 1999 for the murders of 16 women and 10 rapes. Thwala was known by the moniker "The Phoenix Strangler".Thwala began his year-long rape and murder spree in 1996 in South Africa's KwaZulu-Natal province. His modus operandi was to lure local women into accompanying him through the sugarcane fields of Mount Edgecombe near the town of Phoenix with the promise of employment as domestic servants in hotels. Once they were deep within the cane fields, Thwala would attack the women, bind them with their own undergarments and then rape, strangle and bludgeon them to death. Afterwards, hoping to destroy any physical evidence of his attack, he would set fire to the cane fields.[
