Na meer as 'n dekade nadat Sarah Beukes van Loubos in die Mierge-bied wreed vermoor en verkrag is, is haar moordenaar uiteindelik  vasgetrek en gevonnis.
Sarah Beukes is op 02 Februarie 2007 vermoor en dit het geblyk asof Sarah ook net deel van die misdaadstatistieke van Suid-Afrika sou word. Die verdagte, Elrico Beukes, is egter op 15 Februarie 2017 in die Upington streeks-hof tot twintig jaar gevangenisstraf vir die moord en verkragting opgelê.

Hierdie suksesvolle vervolging en gepaardgaande gevangenisstraf het die hoop laat opvlam dat al die moorde wat koud ge-word het ook aandag sal kry en tot arres-tasies sal lei. Speursersant Charles Bok was die onder-soek beampte in hierdie saak.
