The father of a murdered 16 year old girl begs for justice

Today Cape Town woke up to the sad news of Franziska Blöchliger, a 16-year- old school girl who was found dead in the Tokai forest.

Although police are still doing their investigations, it is suspected that the girl might have been strangled.

CapeTalk’s John Maytham spoke to Florian Blöchliger about the death of his daughter which he described as the saddest day of his entire life.

Listen to the full conversation below:

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.
