Police in Nxuba, formerly known as Cradock, have released a public statement seeking a man wanted for questioning related to a recent farm murder in the Karoo region. The body of Matthys van Niekerk, a 65-year-old, was discovered in a farmhouse situated off R390 between Hofmeyr and Nxuba early this week. Authorities have stressed the urgency of locating Andrew Kroukamp, 28, who is believed to possess vital information that will help with the ongoing investigation.

The chilling discovery was made on Wednesday after local police were alerted to investigate the scene of the crime.
