Police investigate farm attack

Nigel SAPS asks that anyone with information should contact them.

Nigel police members are assisting with investigations regarding a farm attack and murder case that occurred at the farm Vrisgewaagt on July 27.

Members of Balfour SAPS found a burnt car in an open veld. Upon further investigation, they found the contact numbers of the next of kin of the vehicle’s registered owner.

The next of kin, who is the mother of the car’s owner, proceeded to the crime scene.

She went to her son’s farm to investigate and upon arrival found the gates locked. Her brother, who accompanied her, had to jump the fence to gain entry.

Upon entering the house, they found a pick handle and blood.

The door to the house was unlocked and they found the body of the owner of the house in the passageway.
He was covered with a blanket and his legs had been tied with an electrical cable.

He was lying in a pool of his own blood and had suffered head injuries.

The house had been ransacked and appliances were scattered on the floor.

Anyone who might have information that may assist in the arrest of the perpetrators may contact Nigel SAPS on 011 812 6511/03 or make use of the MySAPS app.
