Durban - Police are investigating the murder of a
59-year-old man in his home at an Old North Coast Road industrial complex at
"A TV and a PlayStation were taken," police
spokesperson Lieutenant Nqobile Gwala said.
A police source with knowledge of the investigation, who
cannot not be named as he is not authorised to speak to the media, said the man
was found shirtless with his hands bound in front of him on Sunday morning.
“He was the caretaker of the industrial complex here and he
had been dead for quite a while, we think. He had some pre-existing medical
condition. While his hands were tied together, he had no other visible
injuries, but we will know more once the post mortem result comes back,” he
“It would appear that there was forced entry and several
items of value have been removed from the small room where the man lived."
Gwala said dockets of murder and house robbery had been
registered and the police investigation had begun. The motive for the killing
was not yet known.
