Durban - KwaZulu-Natal police are looking into information that a 43-year-old Tzaneen man - who could be linked to the murder of Jan Craemer, 28, whose body was discovered in a Durban hotel room last week - could be in Mpumalanga.

This was after it was reported that a Tzaneen businessman was hospitalised, under police guard, in Middelburg, after a serious car accident.

According to the report, the same man had checked into the hotel with a friend, in the days leading up to the accident, which happened between Middelburg and Belfast, and left him fighting for his life.

Craemer was found dead in the Durban Spa hotel last Thursday.

The Tzaneen businessman had checked into the hotel on Monday and Craemer had come to visit him later in the day.
