Neighbours found Nicholus Mapayane Peu, 41, in his rented home in Kameelrivier A, Vaalbank, last Wednesday around 21:00, Brigadier Leonard Hlathi said.
Peu’s car was missing, and the garage door was wide open. He had several bullet wounds. The house had been ransacked and clothes were scattered everywhere. His grey VW Polo was later found abandoned in Kameelrivier B, with the keys inside.
Police were still searching for the killers.
