GRAAFF-REI­NET — The bo­dy of a 50-y­e­a­rold man was found in the bathroom of his hou­se in Col­le­ge Ro­ad, Graaff-rei­net on Mon­day mor­ning, Ju­ly 3.

The man was an em­ploy­ee of a lo­cal e­lec­tri­cal and ci­vil con­structi­on com­pa­ny, and w­hen he did not ar­ri­ve for work on Mon­day mor­ning, his em­ploy­er was con­cer­ned and went to the man’s ho­me to check if e­ver­y­thing was in or­der.

He then cal­led the po­li­ce, who found the bo­dy of the mis­sing man in his bathroom, with his hands tied to­get­her. Ac­cor­ding to a po­li­ce spo­kes­per­son, War­rant Of­fi­cer Han­nes T­heron, it ap­pears that the man had been strang­led. A mur­der doc­ket has been o­pe­ned, and the ca­se is still in the e­ar­ly sta­ges of the in­ves­ti­ga­ti­on. At the ti­me of going to press, the po­li­ce we­re u­na­ble to gi­ve any furt­her in­for­ma­ti­on, and ha­ve not yet re­le­a­sed the na­me of the victim, as his next of kin ha­ve still to be in­for­med.
