Cape Town - A man has been found murdered in his flat in Cape Town, in what may be another death related to a string of murders of gay men across the country.

Eyewitness News reported that Graham Collop, 50, was found bound and strangled in his Plumstead flat on Sunday.

There were no signs of forced entry and it appeared as though the attackers were let into the flat, which was ransacked.

It was reported earlier that a gang was targeting gay men and police announced last year that a task team would investigate the murders.

Three men were arrested following the death of Johannesburg resident Barney van Heerden, but there were fears that other members of the gang were still on the run.

Police did not confirm that Collop’s death was linked to the gang but his death was similar to the deaths of at least eight other gay men.
