A farm murder took place on 11 November 2020, at about 18:00, on the farm Thelma, in Odendaalsrus, in the Free State province of South Africa. The farm, which is situated just outside the town, also has a guest house on it. The owner Mark Regal was fatally wounded after he was overpowered by at least two attackers.

Regal’s wife returned fire killing one of attackers.

The other attacker fled into the bush. All role players, including farmers, neighborhood watches and police responded but there have been no further arrests. A photo taken by one of the security cameras shows one of the attackers.
