One cannot predict when misfortune is on the cards. And for 27-year-old Alison Botha, a seemingly normal night with friends soon turned into a fight for her life.


Kidnapped from in front of her home 



On December 18, 1984, Alison Botha drove her friend home before heading back to her own apartment in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. When she arrived, she parked her car and reached towards the passenger seat of her car to grab her bag of clean laundry. Suddenly, feeling a gust of wind, she realised that a man had opened her car door – and in his hand was a knife. He threatened to kill her if she didn’t move over to the passenger side, so she did as she was told.

The suspect – later revealed to be Frans Du Toit – then went to pick up another stranger, accomplice Theuns Kruger, before taking Alison to a secluded area far from the city. Once there, they brutally assaulted Botha. Her nightmare didn’t end there, as they went on to try to kill her.

Miraculously, Alison managed to survive.

First, the suspects attempted to strangle her. Botha lost consciousness but managed to survive. This seemed to raise the ire of her attackers, who soon found “better” ways to ensure that Botha’s would never live to tell her tale. What happened next is truly harrowing.
