Man’s body found at military base

The body of a man, 54, was found in the open at the Wingfield military base, in Goodwood, last week. He had been strangled.

Goodwood police’s acting station commander, Lieutenant Colonel Hennie Rademeyer, said they were investigating a murder case after the man’s girlfriend told police on Tuesday morning April 18, that she had found his body.

He said the woman had told officers that she had not been with the man during the night and had found him dead when she arrived in the morning.
