On November 13, 2010, while on their honeymoon in South Africa, newlywed couple Shrien and Anni Dewani, from Bristol, England, were kidnapped at gunpoint. Shrien was released unharmed about 20 minutes later. He found someone on the street and called for help. The next morning, Anni was found dead inside the back of the carjacked vehicle. She had been killed with a single gunshot to her neck.
Honeymoons are a time of celebration and a time for a newly married couple to spend time alone, undistracted from the burdens of everyday life. And Anni’s honeymoon started off that way. Shrien was wealthy, handsome, and fun-loving. Following an elaborate traditional wedding in India, the couple was staying at the 5-star Cape Grace Hotel.
Anni’s killers, including the couple’s tour guide, were arrested for her murder. The couple had been robbed, which was consistent with a random carjacking, but other questions arose. It was unusual that Shrien had been released and Anni had been killed, with the car left behind. And the neighborhood they were travelling in was suspect. When her killers pointed to Anni’s fiancé as the mastermind of a plot to murder Anni, an extended legal battle ensued.
Today at the quiet end we’re talking about a beautiful life cut short, possibly by the man who promised to love and honor her:

  • That was crazy…..
    I don’t know…. I guess Anni’s gaydar batteries hadn’t been charged. Poor Petal 🙁
    It’s not up to me to judge how people chose to identify themselves, but regarding relationships I tend to vet the candidate. However, I am sure there are some culture aspects to this marriage which I am not familiar.
    Her Fathers arm was torn off?!? Gosh…. I am surprised he didn’t succumb to shock. Thankful his arm was reattached.
    And Vlad the German… oh my….
    I am meeting up with friends from Bristol next month. Now I have some cocktail chat. It’s really shocking to me how the court / legal decision outcomes are ruled.
