According to Die Burger, a man from Sea Point, Cape Town, was killed over the weekend after he went on a date with someone he met online.

The body of Graham Flax, 65, was found under a duvet in the corridor outside his flat in the Costa Bravo apartment building.

Police said he had suffered a knock to the head.

As News24 reported:

“Residents of the building heard how he screamed: ‘Let me go! Let me go!” at about 02:40 on Saturday morning,” said Captain Frederick van Wyk.

Police said the murder could not be linked to the murders of eight other gay men in Gauteng, but said there were similarities in the cases.

A man had apparently handed himself over in connection with Flax’s murder and was still to appear in court.
