POLOKWANE – Cleaning up the area where a loved one has died is often unthinkable to most people, yet it is something many had to do because there was no one else.
For Yana Mockford and Bonnita Becker from the 24h Crime Scene Clean-up business, what other people won’t do, is their daily job. They are professionally trained to clean up even the goriest of crime scenes, leaving no trace behind.
“The scenes vary greatly from murder scenes to suicides and everything in between. We have an array of chemicals best suited to clean the area along with the necessary safety gear to protect ourselves,” Mockford explained.
“Our head office is in Pretoria and we only recently started our Limpopo branch. We have encountered some scenes that would have even the most seasoned veteran run to the hills since we started late last year.”

Videogames often make it easy to murder someone, but can the same be said for the clean-up process? That’s what developer iFun4All has set out to explain with the retro-hued Serial Cleaner, which is coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam this summer.
Taking place in the glorious 1970s, Serial Cleaner places gamers into the shoes of the ultimate crime scene cleaner. With police always on the prowl, you’ll need to work fast in order to mop up copious amounts of blood, dispose of bodies and hide incriminating evidence.
One unique feature is that the title uses real-world data in order to alter the experience based around where you’re playing. Night and day will alter noise levels and “sneakability,” so you’ll want to think about what time it is before you boot the game up. To ultimately succeed in the cover-up, players will

ATLANTA (CBS46) –
Georgia leaders identified an industry in need of regulation after a CBS46 investigation uncovered a crime scene clean-up company last year taking light hearted photographs on the job with people’s personal belongings.
Gordy Powell runs a bio clean-up company called Georgia Clean and said House Bill 149 is long overdue.
“It’s the cost of doing business if you want to do it the right way,” Powell said. “There are companies like ours that should not be in business that take advantage of the victims and are actually re-victimizing families.”
If the bill becomes law, it would mandate that all employees in the industry pass a criminal background check, require that companies obtain a $100,000 surety bond and $1 million in liability insurance.
“This would actually protect the families because you don’t know who’s going inside your home,” Powell said.

This is a reader-submitted letter from Erin Perusse, a South Van Ness Avenue resident who lives near where Lisa Williams, a 21-year-old woman, was shot and killed on Wednesday, December 7. Perusse wrote to Mission Local concerned about the treatment of the crime scene following the shooting. We are publishing her letter, edited for clarity, with her permission.
The police have not made an arrest in the shooting death of Williams, but on Thursday evening, a vigil was held on South Van Ness for the young victim.
This happened directly in front of our house, and my husband was one of the first people to find her. He ran outside as soon as the shooting stopped. The most terrifying part was that the shooting went on for many, many shots. We consider ourselves very lucky that the gunshots did not hit our apartment.
I am not writing to you however with the purpose
