Pretoria – The body of a man was found by a passer-by in the bushes in Proclamation Hill, Pretoria West, police said on Thursday.

Constable Tumisang Moloto said police were alerted to the body of the man in his fifties lying in the bushes with both his hands and feet tied.

He had sustained injuries to the upper part of his body.

The man was found on Tuesday evening. 

Moloto said a red Isuzu bakkie that belonged to the victim was found a few metres from the scene. 

"It is alleged that the deceased had left his house at Itireleng squatter camp in Laudium on Monday afternoon and never returned home until his body was discovered on Tuesday night," Moloto said.

The SAPS is appealing to the public or any person who might have witnessed the incident to come forward with information that could lead to arrests.
