About Jose Camacho

Jose Camacho (1947 – 2024)

Brief overview:

Jose (77), a pig farmer and businessman, was found murdered a few metres from his home on 1st May 2024. When Jose didn't answer his phone neighbours went to investigate. It is believed that Jose was murdered on the night of 30th April. The doors and windows to his home were open.

According to Sergeant. Police spokesman Wesley Twigg had Camacho injuries to his head and several stab wounds to his back. Paramedics declared him dead on the scene.

Dirk Gallowitz, a member of the farm guard in the Vredenburg area, believes Camacho was probably killed on his smallholding, Eenzaamheid, on Tuesday night, April 30th. “He bought a bakkie from the neighbours and still had to draw up the paperwork."

Lino Camacho, Jose's son said that his father's livestock and firearms were also stolen. The family was also particularly upset about social media speculation about the murder.

Some residents believe that the killers are the same as the ones who murdered Clint Christians (57), because the modus operandi is similar. Gallowitz confirmed that Jose and Clint were good friends.

According to Sergeant. Police spokesman Wesley Twigg, the results of the DNA tests may be able to shed more light on the cases.

A Resident, who asked not to be mentioned in names, has already provided a description of a possible suspect to the police. It is believed to be a tall man in his late 30’s with a glass eye, who is alleged to live in settlement near the smallholding.
