Club owner found bound, marks on neck

2012-02-07 17:22
Cape Town - Western Cape police confirmed that the body of a man, believed to be the owner of a popular Cape Town nightclub, was found in his Green Point home on Tuesday morning.

"He was found lying on his back on the floor, with his hands tied with tape in front of him. Marks were found around his neck, but the cause of his death is yet to be determined," Warrant Officer November Filander told News24.

The 50-year-old man was found in his house by his domestic worker at about 08:45 in Ocean View Drive, Green Point, he said.

Filander said that the identity of the deceased is being withheld, as his next-of-kin must still be informed.

"It is also unknown if anything was taken from the house. The motive for the murder is still unknown and no arrests have been made as yet," he added.

Earlier reports said the club owner was apparently being harassed by someone.

"He came to see me on Sunday morning. He said he was very traumatised and scared of someone, who was allegedly harassing him,” a friend of the man told Eyewitness News (EWN).

Another man said: “There was some commotion here at about 23:00 on Monday night. The next-door neighbour went over to ask them to keep it down.

"She threatened to call the cops, but she didn’t."
