It appears love is blossoming between convicted murderer Christoff Becker and Brakpan model Lieryn van Niekerk, or Lilly, as she’s know by friends and family.
Becker, one of the so-called ‘Waterkloof Four’, served five-and-a-half years in jail for the horrific killing of a homeless man with three friends. They brutally beat the man to death.
Due to the conditions of his parole Becker (31) is not allowed to speak to the media but Lieryn has told YOU that their relationship is still in its early stages and that they’re still figuring things out.
“We really don’t want to say too much [about the relationship]. The whole thing is still very fresh. We’re still trying to see where it all goes, where our paths end up leading,” Lieryn (20) says to YOU. She also told us that both of their previous relationships recently ended.
YOU spoke to Veronika Geyer, a 20-year-old somatology student from Centurion, in February. Her and Becker’s relationship has since hit the rocks.
The seriousness of his crimes doesn’t seem to have had an effect on his love life: Becker has rarely been spotted without a beauty on his arm since his release in 2014.
