Young Man with IT Dreams Passes Matric, Murdered Days Later

Jermaine1The first thing you notice as a gamer when it comes to this photo would be the black cap with the title “Doom” printed on it.

That’s exactly what happened to this young man just this week. It was front page news in the Cape Times.

This is Jermaine Vermeulen. Days ago, he, like others, learnt that he had passed matric, when the results were released on the 7th of January in most provinces in South Africa (except Mpumalanga).

Days after fetching his results with his mom, Felicity, he was asked by his dad, Roland, to go and fetch some milk from one of his aunts that lived in the area, Athlone, an infamous place known for its gangs and crime.

A few minutes after leaving the house, he rushed back home. He had been stabbed, supposedly with a knife. His dad rushed him to Groote Schuur hospital, but by the time he got there it was too late. Jermaine had died.

Jermaine was described as a homebody, who went to school, and came home afterwards. He wasn’t involved in gangs, crime, or drugs according to his parents. Police say that it doesn’t look as though it was gang related, and his parents think that it was an attempted mugging that went wrong.

Jermaine had aspirations to study something within the information technology spectrum at CTI College. Perhaps Jermaine might have even played the odd video game or two, whether it was at home or school, if he was going to embark on that career path.

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
