“Early this morning his body was found with his hands and feet tied,” Brigadier Neville Malila said.
“Forensic experts are on the scene to establish the cause of death.”
He said the officer’s vehicle was found abandoned on the R101 in Rooival. His family told investigators he left home to go to work shortly after 2pm on Monday.
“Late yesterday afternoon police officers on patrol spotted the officer’s vehicle parked next to the road,” said Malila.
“On inspection they found a uniform and an appointment certificate in the vehicle and started enquiring on the officers whereabouts.”
The officer’s name would not be released until his family was notified. – Sapa
