Maoupa Cedric Maake (born 1965) (also known as the Wemmer Pan Killer) is a serial killer from South Africa. He committed at least 27 murders throughout 1996 and 1997.

Crimes

Maake was arrested in December 1997. On September 6, 2000, he was convicted of 27 murders, 26 attempted murders, 14 rapes, 41 aggravated robberies and many more less serious offenses—133 charges in all. He was sentenced to 1,340 years in prison.

Maake is known as the “Wemmer Pan Killer” because it was this area of Johannesburg that he targeted most of his victims. He also targeted Indian shop owners. It was at first believed that there were two serial killers (one targeting Wemmer Pan and one targeting Indian tailors), but the South African Police Service linked the two sets of murders after Maake signed a lay-by slip at one of the shops he targeted. This signature linked Maake to both areas.

Cedric Maake was featured in a 13-part M-Net television series called Criminal Minds hosted by Malcolm Gooding.
