“He was found lying on the bathroom floor. His hands and feet were tied, and he had been assaulted on the head with a blunt object.”

The rooms in the flat were ransacked.

There was a break in at the main farmhouse on Sunday evening.

“The family only realised in the morning, when they found a window forced open and some household goods, including a laptop and camera, missing.”

Jonker's dark-green ex-military Willys Jeep with a Gauteng registration was stolen.

Otto said no one had been arrested and urged anyone with information to alert police.
