Watch: Murder in police custody?

1 min read

In January 2020, the army and police barged into Wasiela Isaacs’ family home in Athlone on the Cape Flats and arrested her son, Adam. Days later, he died in hospital from blunt force trauma injuries. Two years on, as the Isaacs family awaits justice, a Viewfinder and Carte Blanche investigation has revealed that one of the officers implicated in Adam’s killing had a long history of unchecked brutality allegations against him.

This story was produced by Viewfinder and originally aired on Carte Blanche on 30 January 2022.
