The body of a man who is estimated to be around 40 years old, was found in Shanaan Road near Bloemindustria, Bloemspruit, Bloemfontein, on Sunday, 24 May, police said…

Police spokesperson, Brigadier Sam Makhele said herdsmen spotted the partly decomposed body and alerted the police at around 3.45pm.

“The deceased’s body had bruises and his hands and feet were tied with cable ties and the mouth gagged with a cloth then wrapped with tape. He was wearing blue jeans, an orange T-shirt, scotch lumber jacket and red socks with no shoes,” said Makhele.
