064Scrapyard worker William Sharman shot dead execution-style – for his lunchbox:
17 May 2013 Sanelisiwe Tsinde – Freese Road, New Germany. KZN – William Sharman, a man who worked at Queensmead scrapyard, was murdered by five black men as he arrived for work. They took his briefcase – in which he only carried his lunchbox.
When one man had shot Sharmen twice and walked away, he turned back and shot him in the head when he saw Sharman was still alive, an eyewitness said.
“The gunman was chased and caught by people from surrounding areas and was arrested and the murder-gun recovered. Four others escaped in a white Mazda with a NUF registration.
Walter Riggien owner of Queensmead scrapyard and the son-in-law of the murdered man, said he and the staff were still in shock.
“His briefcase had no money,there was only his lunchbox in it.
“Sharman was my father-in-law and he was an awesome man with a good heart,” saig Riggien.
People around expressed their anger at the cruel way that Sharman was killed as he was such a good man.
New Germany CPF chairman, Matthews Buthelezi, said the rate of crime in this country is shocking.
“What irritates me is that these people (criminals) are not even from this area, they come from faraway places to commit crime here,” said Buthelezi.
