Johannesburg - A case of murder is being investigated after the body of a 22-year-old man was found on the sports field of a high school in Bonteheuwel, Cape Town, Western Cape police said on Wednesday.

The man's body, with multiple stab wounds, was found around 07:30 on Tuesday, police spokesperson Tembinkosi Kinana said.

He could not confirm reports that the man owed money to drug dealers, and that this could be the motive for the murder.

"The circumstances are being investigated," he said.

Two men were taken in for questioning on Tuesday, but were released because they could not be linked to the crime.

Independent Online named the murdered man as Anrich Isaacs.

According to the report, he was disembowelled, possibly over a drug debt.
