Irishman May Have Been Killed For His Mobile Phone

24-Year-Old Appears In Court Over Murder

It’s emerged an Irishman murdered in South Africa may have been killed for his mobile phone.

Investigations are continuing after father of four, John Curran, was found dead at his apartment in Cape Town.

CCTV footage is being examined by officers as part of the investigations but no arrests have been made so far.


South African Journalist JJ Cornish says it doesn’t appear the incident was a burglary that went wrong:

“Well I mean there’s no indication of that at all – there was an British man stabbed at this flat in at Greenpoint – not too far away just last month and a 24-year-old man has been arrested in that regard.”
