Troubling Details Emerge in Joslin Smith Case as Mother Accused of Selling Child for R20K

In a shocking turn of events, information has surfaced, alleging that Joslin Smith’s mother sold her six-year-old daughter for R20,000 to fuel her drug addiction.

Joslin went missing from her home in Saldanha Bay on Cape Town’s West Coast two weeks ago, leaving her in the care of her mother’s boyfriend, Jacquin Appollis.

Denial of Suspected Child Sale and Arrest Reports

Contrary to reports on March 5, claiming the arrest of a suspect who confessed to selling Joslin Smith, Patriotic Alliance (PA) leader Gayton McKenzie has debunked the news as fake.

The couple, Jacquin Appollis and Joslin’s mother, faced accusations from the community regarding their involvement in the disappearance, leading to their relocation to a safehouse.

Father’s Suspicions and Drug Debt Link

Joslin’s biological father, Jose Emke, expressed his suspicion that the disappearance might be linked to a “drug debt” accumulated by Joslin’s mother and her boyfriend, both admitted tik (crystal meth) users.

The couple has consistently denied involvement in Joslin’s disappearance.

Discovery of Potential Evidence and Forensic Testing

Police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Malcolm Pojie confirmed the discovery of clothing, a sheet, and a knife in an open field near the hut where Joslin lived.

Forensic tests on the bloodstained clothes indicated a connection to Joslin. Another knife found in the area raises questions about its relevance to the case, pending further investigation.

Complex Narrative Unfolding

As the investigation into Joslin Smith’s disappearance unfolds, a complex narrative emerges involving drug addiction, alleged child sale, and a community grappling with accusations and suspicions.

The authorities continue their efforts to ascertain the truth behind Joslin’s disappearance, while the community and Joslin’s family await further developments.
