Jayde Panayiotou’s husband has claimed that he is not good with words and that is why he googled his eulogy for her funeral, Netwerk24 reported on Monday.
Christopher Panayiotou’s lawyer Alwyn Griebenow asked him during the weekend about the eulogy after reports surfaced that parts of the eulogy he delivered at his wife’s funeral relied heavily on another one available online.
Griebenow said Christopher explained to him that he was not good with words and every time he had to talk in front of people, including at his wedding, he looked on the internet for the right words.
The eulogy contains phrases used in a tribute written by Charles Atkins called “My Sweet Wife’s Eulogy” and dated October 2010.
Jayde Panayiotou was abducted outside her Kabega Park home on Tuesday, April 28, while waiting for her lift to the school where she worked. She was later found dead on the outskirts of a township in Uitenhage.
Two people have been arrested in connection with her abduction and murder, which appeared to have been deliberate.
One of them, Thando Siyoli, 31, appeared in the Port Elizabeth Magistrate’s Court on Thursday. Details had emerged that a substantial amount of money was paid to kill her.
The other arrested man, aged 28, is a close family member known to News24. He cannot be named until he appears in court on Monday.
