Man MURDERED at home in Ramsgate

2015-04-30 14:51

THE body of a 37-year-old man was found decomposing next to his bed at home in Ramsgate on Thursday.

Gregg Paustier, a diver, lived in a farm house on Fascadale Road.

Margate SAPS spokesperson Captain Gerald Mfeka confirmed the incident and said police are investigating a murder case as they suspect he was stabbed.

Paustier’s friend, Kian Burne, who discovered the body, described him as a fun-loving person whom he had known for 10 years.

Burne said the last time he saw his friend alive was on Monday afternoon and everything seemed normal.

“I tried calling him several times on Tuesday and Wednesday and I found it strange that he was not answering his cellphone,” said Burne.

He said he suspected something was wrong when he received a call from Paustier’s girlfriend, who lives overseas, saying she had been unable to reach him for two days.

The police were called to the scene and they also discovered that Paustier­’s car was missing.

The police have received information that the car was spotted in Bizana.

Paustier’s friends held a memorial­ service on Wednesday at Glenmore beach for him.
