Cape Town – The main accused in the case of murdered Cape Town paediatrician Dr Louis Heyns is claiming the doctor approached him and his brother for sex as they were sitting on a beach.

Dr Heyns disappeared a week ago after leaving the home of his brother in Somerset West to drive back to his home in Cape Town, reported Rapport.

His body was last week found in a shallow grave in a notorious spot on the Strand beachfront.

Dr Heyns was a well-loved and respected doctor and lecturer and his family on Saturday described him as hardworking and caring.

His family have no doubt that he was attacked shortly after leaving his brother’s security estate. They strongly suspect that he was hijacked as the back seat of the car is apparently missing.

One of the accused’s mother, who described her own son as “rotten” and “wicked through and through”, said her son had told detectives he was smoking tik with his brother when Dr Heyns approached them, asking what their tariffs were.

The man claimed to lose his temper and attacked Heyns.

The two brothers as well as a scrapyard owner, to whom the brothers sold Heyns’s car for R2 000 were arrested for his murder.
