This country gave me my fortune, my entire life and my two children and yesterday my daughter was ripped from us unexpectedly, it makes no sense.— Florian Blöchliger
I cannot understand why you would want to kill a young innocent girl for absolutely nothing in broad daylight in the middle of Cape Town— Florian Blöchliger
Coming from Switzerland and living here for 20 years …before we would hear that someone broke into your neighbour house but I would never have expected that it was going to rip right into my heart, so close…— Florian Blöchliger
CapeTalk listeners called in on The John Maytham's to offer condolences to the family of the murdered Tokai teenager, Franziska Blöchliger.
