De Zalze estate
"An axe would be a peculiar choice of weapon for a burglar or thief to take along to the intended crime scene."
The prosecution failed to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt that Henri van Breda axed his family to death in their De Zalze home three years ago.
"I am inches away from losing it with them and breaking down completely" a court heard he said.
The responding officer said triple murder-accused Henri van Breda did not seem traumatised when he arrived on the scene.
"All we want is closure", says a former neighbour of the family on the luxury winelands estate where the prosecution alleges Henri van Breda hacked his mom, dad and brother to death.
"I am not a fast runner and did not think I would be able to catch him. I then threw the axe at him," claimed murder-accused Breda.
