“It is alleged that the deceased was stabbed to death about three weeks ago...,” said Sergeant Kealeboga Molale. The man's 20-year-old son was arrested on Thursday.

Molale said the gruesome discovery was made after neighbours smelled a foul stench coming from the house and contacted the 49-year-old man's relatives. He was last seen alive on June 6.

“The police were alerted and they conducted a search at the house with relatives...,” she said.

The motive for the murder was not yet known.
