A farm murder took place on the evening of Thursday 1 October 2020, in Paul Roux, West of Bethlehem, in the Free State province of South Africa. A young farmer, Brendin Horner (21) was attacked and brutally murdered by an unknown number of attackers after leaving his fathers farm on route home at 19:00. At 22:00 the family went looking for him as he never arrived home but found nothing and could not reach him on his phone.

On Friday 2 October 2020, at about 05:35 Brendin’s father and girl friend continued the search and found the young man near the gate of the farm. He was tied to a pole by his neck and had been brutally beaten, tortured and strangled to death.

The bakkie he was driving was later found abandoned along the S194. There is no other information available at this stage. The police are investigating but there have been no arrests.
