I don't understand why he was murdered except to sow terror in the ranks of the other rangers, or perhaps for the sure cruelty of it. There are no elephants or rhino in Liuwa Plains, so therefore there's no wildlife to poach. It's not only a heinous crime, but a senseless one.

"It's not only a heinous crime, but a senseless one." Indeed. Very sad. Just read the story. Probably poachers involved in the 'bushmeat' trade.

Well they have found the perpetrators! A big sentence eg. life will send a message. Senseless, killing.

We are all of course delighted that they found the poachers, and that they will be given a long sentence. This doesn't seem to be the type of case where the poachers are part of a big syndicate.
