Joint Enterprise is a little-known law that means anyone knowingly involved in a murder can be charged with murder.
No matter how small their involvement.
To show how even small actions lead to a
murder charge, we created ‘Who Killed Deon?’,
a murder mystery Facebook page, inviting viewers to hunt the killer.
Viewers interacted by guessing which of a group of suspects ‘killed Deon’.
Following suspects’ stories, they discovered that although only one committed the stabbing, the others played a small but significant role.
Under Joint Enterprise, everyone involved in
this ‘whodunit’ did it, meaning everyone is charged with murder.
