Ever wondered who cleans the crime scene where somebody died brutally? Or crime scenes with partially of fully decomposed bodies? Meet the two sisters from Pretoria, who not only clean crime scenes but also try to relief the trauma of those left behind.
Eileen de Jager and Roelien Schutte’s job is most people’s worst nightmare, but extremely important. Somebody has to do it. Fortunately, these two women perform the job with compassion and empathy. From farm attacks to family murders and suicides, you are likely to find the sisters from Crime Scene Clean-up. They come armed with the correct equipment and chemicals, but above all, also with courage and humanity.
They pick up the pieces – sometimes literally – to allow others to carry on with their lives. It is a reality far removed from the glitz and glamour of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. This is dirty and real, and the sisters are all too aware of that after years of experience in the industry, both locally and in the United Kingdom.
